The name for the style of pyramid the Mayans built is "ziggurat." See more »
When Chief Black Eagle (Yul Brynner) and the enemy warrior fall off the pyramid together, they land in what is clearly a softened landing pad covered with sand, as at least 10 square feet of sand around them erupts into the air when they land in it. See more »
Chief Black Eagle:
Being rooted like trees never was meant for us. I take my people to where we belong. For there is no roof but the sky. For there are no walls to the edges of the earth. I take them to where birds sing for us. And where we live free like the deer.

I remember seeing this movie a few times back un the mid sixties and loving it. How bad I felt for the Mayans as they are defeated by the Toltecs (or whoever) and the royal family and troops retreat to the palace. But ahh the escape via tunnel and ultimately ship, to the Gulf coast of America. And yes, the final battle with the native indians coming to the aid of the Mayans (no place to run this time!)
I now realize this movie is not on video, but does anyone have a copy of their own somehow, that would be willing to make other copies? I would pay well for one!
What about German or other foreign versions?
Please contact me even if you have no news news and simply want to talk about the movie or book (which I have).
