Fairly enjoyable adventure
This is one of those movies that I didn't know existed until I picked up a VHS copy on a market stall recently.

It is about two men who are sent to India to search for a particular type of diamond. While in India, they meet Queen Maya and end up in all sorts of adventures. They get captured by some natives and, not surprisingly, one of the men falls in love with Queen Maya. They escape the natives at the end, after some fighting.

The movie is shot nicely in colour and has some scenic locations.

The cast includes Fermando Lamas and Jay Novelle, who were to be reunited in the 1960 version of The Lost World, Arlene Dahl (Journey To the Centre of the Earth) and Gilbert Roland.

Though not brilliant, I rather enjoyed watching this movie and is a good way to spend 80 minutes one evening.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
