Not directed by Cecil B. DeMille but with many of his trademarks, including love with exotic flashbacks. The plot is absolutely delicious hokum and involves both romance and archaeology.
Leatrice Joy is a delight as the heroine of the picture, who just wants her boyfriend to show as much interest in her as he does in dusty tombs and has a rather nice action girl sequence in the bargain. The plot hasn’t a brain in its head but that’s kind of the point. Relax and enjoy the pure, unadulterated kitsch.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Leatrice and her fella are trapped in a tomb and he finally figures out that love is pretty swell. They are rescued but still mushy when the film fades out.
If it were a dessert it would be: Candy Corn Jello. Kitschy, old school fun.
