Storyline

After doing military service in the Middle East, British archaeologist Holly, his valet and his handsome young friend Leo are spotted in Palestine and approached by a mysterious oriental who identified Leo by his uncanny likeness to the portrait on an ancient coin. An adventurous search for the lost Pharaonic city of Kuma proceeds relying on a recently-acquired map. Their hasty mini-expedition reaches a hidden city where the Hellenistic age is still alive. It is ruled by the supernatural Ayesha, 'She who must be obeyed', who believes Leo is is the reincarnation she waited for all those centuries of Callicrates, a companion of Alexander the Great. She offers him immortality and to share the throne as her eternal love, but it goes tragically wrong... Written by KGF Vissers

Out of this World
28 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Breathtakingly gorgeous in this film is Ursula Andress. Equally as beautiful and ever so handsome and blond (an earlier Brad Pitt) is stunning John Richardson--whatever happened to him? This is a fantasy film. I have seen it many times and I never tire of it. It is one of my favorite films. Terribly unrealistic and impractical, yet maybe it could be true at that. Great acting and storyline. A fun movie and just a marvel to see how envy and jealousy interact in many ways. I highly recommend seeing (and owning) this movie. It is out of this world. And I mean that in a good supernatural way. Don't miss it when it comes on late night TV or buy the movie for yourself. You will enjoy it.
