Synopsis / Plot
In this historical drama, Pharoah Ramses XIII (George Zelnik, aka Jerzy Zelnik) defies tradition when his father dies by assuming command of the military, a post usually occupied by priests. His defiance leads to a battle between those loyal to Ramses XIII and the power structure of the priests. The priests try to fool the people by capitalizing on a solar eclipse, but Ramses XIII realizes the event is only a natural phenomenon. Battle scenes and period costumes from ancient Egypt add to the effectiveness of this colorful three-hour epic historical drama.
