Reviews

  • "A sweeping adventure filled with tigers, snakes, romance and the camp-connoisseur favorite Debra Paget, these two movies marked Lang’s return to German film production after more than two decades in Hollywood, although both were shot and set in India. [M]ore than three hours of expressionistic color and wild plot developments await."
    Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times
  • "Perhaps Lang's most open-aired use of color, and wonderful, late-period entertainment."
    Jeffrey Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
  • "Visually striking adventure film, in beautiful color."
    Michael Grost, Classic Film and Television
  • "Exciting, exotic and imaginative epic."
    Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
