Ramses (Armando Francioli) taunts the helpless Queen Akis (Linda Cristal) in THE PHARAOHS' WOMAN

Entertaining PEPLUM melodrama with big battles scenes and an interesting cast. Argentinian-born Cristal appeared in a handful of S&S films but she's best known for Hollywood westerns. Linda's other big Euro made PEP was LEGIONS OF THE NILE and in a way this film is much better than LEGIONS even though LEGIONS has some remarkable aspects that surpass this one. I don't care much for the LEGIONS OF THE NILE script (it's all over the place). This one is more even and, in the end, more successful.
