King Solomon's Mines ★½ 1985 (PG-13)

The third remake of the classic H. Rider Haggard novel about a safari deep into Africa in search of an explorer who disappeared while searching for the legendary diamond mines of King Solomon. Updated but lacking the style of the previous two films. Somewhat imperialistic, racist point of view. 101m/C VHS, DVD . Richard Chamberlain, John Rhys-Davies, Sharon Stone, Herbert Lom; D: J. Lee Thompson; W: Gene Quintano; M: Jerry Goldsmith.
