The Sword of Islam (1962)
Original title: Wa Islamah
Arabian adventure. Italy/Egypt. Starring Rushdy Abaza, Lobna Abdel Aziz, Silvana Pampanini, Folco Lulli & Ahmed Mazhar. Directed by Enrico Bomba & Andrew Marton.
EVC (Holland). Italian language with dutch subtitles. Widescreen.
Obscure, but not very good arabian adventure. Good cinematogrophy, nice sets and reasonably fast-paced but the dull and not very dashing hero (played by an egyptian actor instead of a good old american bodybuilder in "arabian" make-up) ruins most of the fun. The italian dub with dutch subtitles didn't help matters either. An egyptian-italian co-production. 2/5
