Storyline

In 600 BC, Babylon is conquered by the army of King Assur. When the Chaldean people refuse to submit to his rule, their leader Ahmal (Montalban) flees into the country and is hidden by a beautiful goatherd named Semiramis (Fleming). She is later captured, becomes the King's favorite and is soon made queen. When Ahmal himself is made a prisoner, he believes she has betrayed him. The king's wicked cousin tortures Ahmal and uses both him and Semiramis in his plot to depose the king and seize power for himself. When he does murder Assur, he blames Semiramis and prepares to burn her at the stake. But Ahmal and his people, toiling as slaves in a nearby quarry, are alerted by an informant... Written by R. Scott Gibson

so bad, it's good!
6 April 2000 | by anteliuSee all my reviews

Well, I must admit that this one put a smile on my face. As Susan Sontag put it in her essay, 'Notes on Camp', this movie is so bad- it's good! A movie with such huge ambitions and which fails so miserably deserves some credit indeed- this movie is serious 'camp' in its purest sense. Ricardo is fabulous...and Rhonda Fleming, how sultry is she? If anyone can find me a copy of this, I'd be forever grateful.
