Purim being celebrated earlier this month provides the inspiration for today's feature. Joan Collins in what is probably her least typical role plays the Jewish queen with Richard Egan as Persian King Ahasuerus/Xerxes I. As will all movies based upon the Bible, make sure to read the book as well.

Epic Clash! Conquering Heroes! Treachery...! "Bacchanalian" Rituals!
BTW, Bacchanalian Rituals loosely translate to "heavy drinking" and "frenzied sexual activity" for you modern folk.)
If I got "Bacchanalian" in a spelling bee, I would be...eliminated!
Up to half of my remote control!

(This is not a statement of fact. It is either opinion or satire; or both.)
Indeed. That’s from “Land of the Pharaohs”, my favorite of her movies.
