      Comments about Land of the Pharaohs (MOD):

      Ancient Egypt came to brilliant Life in a Spectacle where People Mattered. Everything was
      REAL, NOT computer generated...as in today's garbage, like "Gods of Egypt."

      Comments about Land of the Pharaohs (MOD):

      As tribute to the all-conquering mighty Pharaoh Khufu, Jack Hawkins, Princess Nellifer, Joan Collins, offers herself in place of spoils to fill the pharaoh's treasure vaults given that she's just a poor ruler from an even poorer country. In no time at all, she becomes the fave of the pharaoh using her seductive wiles and allure in an ambitious scheme to usurp the throne, letting nothing and no-one, including the current queen, her son and pharaoh himself stand in her way. Long regarded by many in Hollywood as the poor man's Liz Taylor, Collins' makes the most of her own flawless beauty, and, talent as a legitimate actress in a once-in-a lifetime role as Nellifer. She even manages to overshadow and upstage Hawkins in their scenes together. Other points of interest include our being afforded an insider's POV of how the pyramids might've been constructed from drawing board stage and labyrinthine interior to stone apex. Filmed on location, director Howard Hawks enlisted some 9,787 extras actually recruiting from the ranks of the modern Egyptian Armed Forces. Novelist William Faulkner co-wrote (but didn't necessarily improve upon) the screenplay. Spoiler alert: In the classic tradition of Greek tragedy, Collins' receives her just reward in what has to be the ultimate cinematic revenge.
