Editorial Reviews

Jeanne Crain, Vincent Price, Edmund Purdom, Amedeo Nazzari. Here is a quality sword and sandal epic with a great cast that has been overlooked for years. Crain plays the stunning Egyptian beauty, Nefertiti. Purdom desires her but is foiled at every turn by an evil high priest who twice imprisons him. She eventually marries the Pharaoh and after his death becomes the queen of all Egypt. The high priest then attempts a military takeover! Some good action scenes follow. Price is most convincing as the vile high priest. Lots of excitement and court intrigue in this fine sword and sandal thriller. Nice color. 16mm.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I cannot agree with the other reviewer on this page,concerning the print quality.
The color is very good,the print is sharp,though only Pan & Scan.

also Sinister Cinema do not put out bootleg films,they have the rights to release them.

Yes it would be nice to see a Widescreen version,but 20th Century Fox,wont release it.,maybe one day
It never even came out on VHS.

Anyway the this version is Highly Recommended

This might have been a cool movie, but I couldn't tell from this DVD. Although obviously shot in widescreen, the image here is cropped to a boxy square and looks faded and beat up. It was so bad I didn't even bother to finish watching the movie. My advice would be to wait for a proper DVD release.

Frankly, I am always interested in seeing old films (the Kitchier the better). But I also like quality. Sinister has claimed to be the directors and to have the rights to these films, but they do no justice to them with the poor quality of the reproduction. Also, they do not represent themselves in a straight forward manner. They should state in the description of the film who they are, what they do, what rights they have and then give a synopsis of the film itself. That way, no one can mistake the film they order to be a direct release from the studio. I believe they are acting in an underhanded way.

This "Queen of the Nile" is in fact the English-language dubed version of the 1961 Italian "Nefertiti, regina del Nilo", one of those somewhat megalomaniac Italian productions that feed on an American or English actor/actress to lend it some weight. In this case, the only really well known actor is Vincent Price, who carries his role well. Of course, when the heard word travels a different course from the lip movement of the actors, one doesn't quite know whether to laugh or cry. The plot is quite different from the historic version of egyptologists, introducing love triangles that the "official" archeological data and speculation laugh at; that drowns the plot into the liquid of far-fetched bad fiction. Both sound and image on the dvd are of very poor quality, making some of the lines very difficult to understand. I gave it two stars given my personal interest in films related to Ancient Egypt, which are very few, especially when some historic accuracy is seeked, othewise a 1-star classification would be quite adequate given very poor sound and image as well as a poor, far-fetched plot.

I am not sure why anyone would expect a this film or "The Egyptian", "The Land of the Pharaohs" or even "Cleopatra" to be historically accurate?!! Consider the time they were made! Well, still, we want glamorous, romantic versions that are so far from the true story. Watch "Reign" or The Tudors"-I am a history professor and I can tell ya those are so far from fact, but fun, none the less!
This is not Criterion, pricey art-house, beautifully restored to look better than when it premiered, this is put out by a company called Sinister Cinema, who doesn't remaster, they take fun and campy, hard-to-find films like this and print them, then sell them at a great price! I love Sinister! It is not a bad print, even.
Jeanne Crain is beautiful, Vincent Price is outrageous and the whole film is a lot of fun! I highly recommend a double feature with "Land of the Pharaohs", with Joan Collins, a few cocktails and your best friends!

As anything, good, bad or indifferent on Ancient Egypt interests me, this was my reason for purchasing this product. Beautiful as she was, Jeanne Crain is hardly anybody's idea of a queen of the Nile. Resemblence to actual history was purely accidental, but I was entertained and what better reason for watching a sword and sandal epic?

The plot of the movie was okay. The story and the names were not historic.

This movie quality is reprehensible. The DVD format was pulled off of a VHS tape. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT FROM SINISTER CINEMA. They are extraordiarily cheaply made, attempting to pass off the movies as professionally released. It's a lie they keep telling people.

Their name tells the truth: Sinister Cinema. It's a throwback title from the 1970s, a TV show every saturday night that would show horror flicks. Yes, they are still horrible.
