Solomon and Sheba

Film, Drama

Time Out says

The Bible's sultriest couple, bar Samson and Delilah, deserve better than this empty Super Technirama epic. There's so much visual padding (feathers, armour, redundant crowd scenes) it's hard to focus on the romance. Lollobrigida does her pouting best, but she's no Gloria Swanson. Tyrone Power, the original Solomon, died halfway through production; Brynner, his replacement, is decidedly ill at ease. More fun to tuck up with the Old Testament.
