About this item
Using the dry historical tome GODS, GRAVES AND SCHOLARS as its source, MGM came up with the rip-roaring adventure film VALLEY OF THE KINGS. Robert Taylor plays Mark Brandon, an Indiana Jones-style archaeologist who embarks upon an expedition to Egypt. Brandon has agreed to help Ann Mercedes (Eleanor Parker) to locate the tomb of the Pharoah Ra-Hotep, thereby proving the validity of her late father's theories about Egyptian history. Along for the ride is Ann's seemingly affable husband Philip (Carlos Thompson), while the sinister Hamed Bachkour (Kurt Kasnar), who seems to be a criminal of some sort, dogs the expedition's trail. Upon arriving at the tomb, all heck breaks loose as the film's true heroes and villains are revealed. VALLEY OF THE KINGS combines location-filmed footage in glorious Eastmancolor with a few moderately convincing studio mockups.
