By the Gods!

Edmund Purdom and Jeanne Crain in NEFERTITI - QUEEN OF THE NILE (1961)

I recently acquired an HD version of this movie and I have to say that I'm stunned. The quality of the image is jaw-dropping. It's one of the best looking PEPLUM transfers I've seen since...the recent THIEF OF BAGHDAD one from Germany. The thing is...this is a Fan Dub. It's not available anywhere to purchase. The audio, taken from a copy from the US, is standard but the image itself is beautiful. I wonder who made this Fan Dub. Anyway, the cinematography by Massimo Dallamano is lush and the movie looks like it was shot yesterday. A real surprise.

This is one of my favorites of the historical Sword and Sandal films. The three leads alone make it worth watching. Sure it is historically worthless but it is still beautiful to look at and very involving. I wish it
would come out on Blu-ray.
