Quotes

Burundai: Did you plan to desert me, Ciu Lang, eh? Where were you bound for? Did you dream of bearing your lying reports of me to the court of the great Khan? Did you dare to think I would let you return to the east?
Ciu Lang: You cannot stop me, Burundai, unless you kill me.
Burundai: Why should I spare you, then? You give me no choice. I, who stand on the threshold of glory... What does your little life mean to me?
Ciu Lang: Less than nothing. It means no more to me. We have no choice in the matter of death. It comes for us all, ...

Grade B Western set in Central Asia.
12 May 2005 | by gohlsonSee all my reviews

This was one of those awful exotic spectaculars of the 1950's and early 1960's that tried to place a grade b western into an exotic place. In this case, Orson Welles and Victor Mature quarrel over control of the steppes of central Asia. The dialog is stilted, to be kind only because I can't think anything worse to say about it. The plot consisted on Orson Welles plotting(he was already getting fat)and Victor Mature running around showing his muscles. The movie combined the worse attributes of the two. Victor Mature was never noted for his ability to handle sophisticated dialog and Orson Welles was never noted as an action hero, except at the dinner table. The movie did feature some rather stunning blonde women with large mammary glands, but their parts were limited to lines like, "Yes, Great Khan." Even something that simple was often blown. After seeing this film it's hard to understand why they say Orson Welles was so great. This one certainly didn't do him any honor. I gave the movie a 1 only because they wouldn't let me give it a 0.
