Nefer (Bella Darvi) playes with Sinuhe (Edmund Purdom) in THE EGYPTIAN
A curio of a film which makes me wonder what audience FOX had in mind when they green-lighted this? It's not bad but for me it's not a film that's on my list of repeat viewing flicks. The film is not religious by any means. In fact, I think the film was made by an atheist. The one thing that I really like about it is how it's so different than what they did back then. It's basically a big budgeted existential Hollywood epic. The story of Bella Darvi is a tragic one of sorts. I wrote about her story at the TRAGIC STARS permanent page. British actor Edmund Purdom would have a long career in PEPLUM films. He even moved to Rome on a permanent basis.
