Elizabeth Duke at Argos Queen
This is a pretty inert India-set costumer of the watch-where-you're-poking-that-sword-or-you'll-knock-the-set-over variety. Given the title, there is no notable coruscation besides the Technicolour, which is gorgeous and illuminates Eugene Lourie's surroundings to excellent effect (he'd just production-designed Renoir's 'The River' and was about to embark on 'The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms). Lamas tried as he might but was never able to break Hollywood's market for even the B-costumer rogue (even John Derek managed more tried-and-tested prolificy); and Dahl's sireny is less than compensatory enough to inspire bravado in the climactic duel between her 2 potential suitors.

Update - the print shown on More4 in the UK in November 2006 is terrible, and will not reflect the technical qualities mentioned above.
