Description by OLDIES.com:
She has waited 2000 years for her lover to be reborn - the lover dead by her own hand! Luscious Ursula Andress stars in H. Rider Haggard's classic tale of an ageless love goddess, ruler of a magnificent lost mountain realm, who discovers the reincarnation of her beloved in a handsome English adventurer (John Richardson). Promising riches and her seductive self, she lures him through countless perils into the Desert of Lost Souls, the Mountains of the Moon and a pillar of fire that grants eternal life. Famed horror team Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee co-star in this imaginative story of danger and desire.
In this lavish fantasy-adventure three treasure-seekers come across the lost city of Kura and encounter the all-powerful, immortal Empress Ayesha, who dubs one of them the reincarnation of her long-lost love. A fun remake of the H. Rider Haggard tale.
