(7-Very Good Film)
Pulpy. Thrilling. Lush.
Another B-movie classic from the master filmmaker that is Fritz Lang. The German auteur tells an action-packed adventure story about an architect from the west, Harold Berger (Hubschmid), who gets caught up in a deadly affair with Seetha (Paget), the bride-to-be of the Maharaja, the man he is hired to work for. Beautiful technicolor imagery and one great suspenseful scene in particular involving a magic trick gone wrong. Very little substance, but thrilling entertainment.
