By the Gods!

Yvonne Furneaux, as Semiramis, in SLAVE QUEEN OF BABYLON (1963)

Another film based on the legend of Semiramis. Unlike the Rhonda Fleming version profiled yesterday, this one is more accurate...only slightly more accurate. I like this movie. It's a twin production with WAR GODS OF BABYLON (1962). Same sets, costumes, general production but different cast and director. Which one is the best? It's hard to say. They both have good aspects while also having weak aspects. They're basically the same with this movie slightly better thanks to Yvonne's performance and a better cast.
