Tony Curtis and Piper Laurie in a publicity still for THE PRINCE WHO WAS A THIEF

One of many Sword & Sandal/Arabian adventures for both Curtis and Laurie. This being one of their earlier genre films (made in 1951). Tony regretted starring in these kind of films and said he wasn't taken seriously as an actor because of them and he wished he had gotten better roles earlier on. As for Piper, she stopped making films in the mid-1960s and had a great comeback role in CARRIE (1976) and was nominated for an Oscar®. Director Rudolph Maté would later direct THE 300 SPARTANS and REVAK THE REBEL.
