By the Gods!

Edmund Purdom, as Ibrahim Pascià, in SULEIMAN THE CONQUEROR (1961)

How many people have seen this film? It is obscure. It reminds me of CONQUEROR OF THE ORIENT (1960), in terms of budget and storyline. The lady in the background, though with some sizeable screen time, remains uncredited. I like Edmund Purdom. Whenever he's on screen, the film is interesting but alas he's not in big part of the film.

I have this movie that I got several years ago from SWV, and the print is pretty good with very good color. I searched for this movie for years and prior to getting this dvd the last time I saw it was on TV during the 60's. I like this movie which is filled with action and spectacle and a good plot to it.

I never saw this movie but I would love to see it. But I can t find it anywhere sadly.

I'm terribly interested since I truly love the historical Ibrahim - just for finding any information about him I even read incredibly difficult books like Marino Sanudo's diaries (can't believe I really do it)!!! Please if you have the movie upload it somewhere pleasee!!!
