By the Gods!

Princess Amar (Dina Loy) and Kadir (Kirk Morris) in FALCON OF THE DESERT (1965)

One of 4 'Desert' films starring Kirk Morris. The other three are DESERT RAIDERS (uploaded at PEPLUM TV), HERCULES OF THE DESERT (aka Maciste in the Valley of the Thundering Echoes), and CONQUEROR OF ATLANTIS. All good. This one is more grounded : there's no superpowers and Morris plays a Rudolph Valentino / Sheik type. From the same production team that gave us KINDAR THE INVULNERABLE. In fact, there's an excellent scene from the latter film in this one. This is Dina's only PEPLUM production so I'm not very familiar with her. She mostly appeared in Spaghetti Westerns.

While on the subject of Peplum actresses, did you see that Jose Greci died the other day?
