Land of the Pharaohs ★★½ 1955

Epic about the building of Egypt's Great Pyramid. Hawkins is the extremely talkative pharoah and Collins plays his sugary-sweet yet villainous wife. Sort of campy, but worth watching for the great surprise ending. 106m/C VHS, DVD . Jack Hawkins, Joan Collins, James Robertson Justice, Dewey Martin, Alexis Minotis, Sydney Chaplin; D: Howard Hawks; W: Harold Jack Bloom; C: Lee Garmes.
