Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Ursula Andress is destined always to be remembered for her voluptuous performance in the first Bond movie, Dr No. However, she acquits herself better than you might expect in this adaptation of H Rider Haggard's much-filmed fantasy. Indeed, she looks in great shape for a 2,000-year-old queen of a lost kingdom, who is still yearning for the embrace of a lover she killed centuries ago. The African backdrops are easily matched by Swiss-born Andress's own brand of exotic beauty and, while there's plenty to criticise, there's also much to enjoy.
