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

RICARDO MONTALBAN THE HERO AMAL.
4 October 2000 | by moshnSee all my reviews

I AM AN ethusiastic fan of the fabulous movie star ricardo montalban and my comment refers to his performance in this movie. I recommend this movie to all ricardo's fans as well to all viewers who are into this genere swords& sandals adventures action movies. I think RICARDO is just great in this movie. Handsome virile and most convincing. He impressed me as a fighter and as a lover and he features the difficult role in a very impressing way. in several scenes he made me most excited. IT was in the dangeon where he is tortured by lashes on his bare chest and in the scene in the arena where he voluntarily fights sharks in order to save the lives of his innocent followers. in front of the eyes of his cruel enemies as well as in front of terrified presence of his lover now THE QUEEN OF BABYLON,he shows courage strength and high physical ability. i find him attracting and fascinating in every form. this is a personal point of view of an admirer of RICARDO montalban for more than 50 years. for those who are looking for a copy i have a poor one.
