Debra Paget an entrancing beauty
21 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

The 20th Century Fox studio have finally bowed to public demand & released "Princess Of The Nile" on DVD. Nobody can, hand on heart, pretend that it is a great movie but it is a triumph for the innovation of glorious technicolor. Playing the title role Debra Paget, then aged just 20, was just about as beautiful as any young lady can possibly be. Dressed in an array of diaphanous costumes she looks utterly fabulous &, even if she was not that much of an actress, her erotic dancing is as breathtaking as her looks. For the ladies, Fox studio have co-starred the handsomest of their leading young actors Jeffrey Hunter as Prince Haidi. Nobody is going to include POTN in their list of top ten movies but, crikey, I never saw a vision of loveliness the equal of young Debra Paget in this movie. She takes the phrase "eye candy" to a whole new level & I guarantee that anyone who buys it will not be disappointed.
