Solomon and Sheba (1995)
9 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only saw the preview for this movie in 1995 and I wanted to see it very much but I was not able to on the evening it aired. I have never forgotten it though. I have been looking for a copy of the movie for several years and always, always come up empty. I can't help but wonder if racism has something to do with it. Did Showtime receive complaints that they dare use people of color to represent people of color in this movie? Has public release of the movie been prohibited so as to erase all memory that the movie was ever made? I had several posters of African queens, Sheba, was one of them, in which the queens were depicted as the African women they were. They were hung on display in a public library and so enraged certain users of the library they were removed.....that is those that weren't stolen or destroyed.

Can anyone help me get a copy of this movie so that I can finally view it. Twelve years is a long time.
