Conqueror of The Orient is the first DVD I have purchased from Amazon whereby it is not exactly in stock but is manufactured once somebody orders it. I thought this would take some time to receive, but it got to me just as fast as if it had already been in stock. The description of this movie on the Amazon web page (and on the back of the DVD) is close to being correct but in fact, it was written in error. Watch the movie and you will see what I mean.

The movie was made in 1960, in both France and Italy, but I'm guessing most of it was filmed in Italy because after all, it is an Italian film, and lots of the exterior scenery looks Mediterranean in nature. Check out those giant agaves plants at the twenty five minute mark. They are really something to behold and I can't help but wonder if they are still there.

Quality wise, I had no expectations for a clean, crisp and colorful print and indeed the movie has way too many film/audio breaks, isn't crisp in the least and the color is a constant semi-soft blur. Though in the film's defense, the color is still there and by this I mean that it hasn't totally bled away like so many sword and sandal movies that you get in those value-pack collections for $5.00, where it's hard to tell if the movie was produced in color or black and white.

Despite the fact that this movie has a number of age related drawbacks, it does have its merits and I've even learned the following tidbits of knowledge from watching it:
1. It is good to curb your anger if you value your life.
2. An arrow doesn't strike into a target with force at more than forty paces.
3. You can turn a Sultan on by being haughty (especially if you are a captured princess.)
4.

Typical Italian/French-made, English-dubbed sword-and-sandal flick with an Arabian Nights flavor. The usurped prince of a conquered land must regain his kingdom and the princess of his heart. The Alpha DVD release is only OK quality but it has not been re-mastered. The color is adequate but the picture is NOT sharp and clear. Recommended for fans of the genre.
