Princess Amina (Carmen Sevilla) and tyrannical father Ibrahim (Gino Cervi) prepare for some big news in DESERT WARRIOR

This film was made just before the release of HERCULES and it's a nice solid production if a bit generic. It's an Italian/Spanish co-production but it's really a Spanish production as the two lead actors are Mexican (Ricardo Montalban) and Spanish (Carmen Sevilla). It's even listed at IMDb under its Spanish title: LOS AMANTES DEL DESIERTO. And it was released first in Spain (1957) and in Italy a year later, in December 1958. So it's one of the few Spanish PEPLUM flicks. As another note of interest: according to IMDb, this film has 5 directors to its credit (4 names are listed during the opening credits)!!!
