Trivia

Logistics were further complicated by the problem of communication among a cast and crew consisting of people from several different countries. There were at least twenty-eight different languages on the set at any given time, with people from fourteen different countries, and groups of African natives each with its own distinct dialect.

28 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sheena has been entertaining us for close to 70 years now, but you sure wouldn't know it to look at her. She still looks as beautiful and sexy as ever. I've had a ball following Sheena's adventures in the pulps, comic books, on TV, and in this Sheena movie from 1984. My favorite actress in the role of Sheena is Irish McCalla, but I've enjoyed Tanya Roberts and Gina Lee Nolan too. Roberts is stunningly beautiful and she conveys a wonderful sense of innocence as Sheena. This 1984 Sheena movie is a blast of cheesy fun that provides plenty of entertaining moments that make for great escapism. Enjoy this one with good friends, beverages, and lots of popcorn. Sheena is fun!
