By the Gods!

Semiramis (Rhonda Fleming) dances during a sacrificial ceremony in QUEEN OF BABYLON (1954)

This movie has many perticularities:

- Two versions exists. One for the European market and one for the US market. They're basically the same but with different edits and scenes here and there. The US edit is much tighter, less cumbersome than the European one. Because of this difference I cannot make a Fan Dub of it.

- Rhonda Fleming dances but was she really a dancer? She performed in Las Vegas but dancing wasn't her talent.

- Rhonda's voice is used in the English version but Ricardo Montalban's voice is not.

- Though the movie uses names and settings from history it has almost nothing to do with actual historical facts.

- The title on movie posters is THE QUEEN OF BABYLON but the title during the opening credits is QUEEN OF BABYLON
