Classic film and now digitally remastered in colour. Highly influential, Largely forgotten-and lots of fun

SHE is an all-powerful woman who has been given the Flame of Eternal life and who dwells in an Arctic snow palace in this early special-effects adventure fantasy. Based on H. Rider Haggard's 1887 novel.

"From H. Rider Haggard's weird, wondrous story of the beautiful woman who bathed in flame and lived 500 years .. at last to find her first love at this very hour! "

Leo Vincey, told by his dying uncle of a lost land visited 500 years ago by his ancestor, heads out with family friend Horace Holly to try to discover the land and its secret of immortality, said to be contained within a mystic fire. Picking up Tanya, a guide's daughter, in the frozen Russian arctic, they stumble upon Kor, revealed to be a hidden civilization ruled over by an immortal queen, called She, who believes Vincey is her long-lost lover John Vincey, Leo's ancestor

Actors: Helen Gahagan, Randolph Scott, Helen Mack & Nigel Bruce
Director : Lansing C. Holden & Irving Pichel
Year:1935

Trivia: -

This film exists today only because silent film star Buster Keaton had a copy of the original print stored in his garage, which he gave to film historian Raymond Rohauer for preservation.

The sets, costumes, etc. were all prepared for a colour film. At the last minute, RKO pulled Merian C. Cooper's budget, and so, he was forced to shoot the film in black and white. Friend Ray Harryhausen and Legend Films later colorized the film as a tribute to Cooper.

This is an interesting film from Merrian C. Cooper, the man behind the original King Kong. Legend films have done the colorization with help from Ray Harryhausen and are the best in the business. Not like the old blurry 80's colorization. I have some other legend films colrization dvds including the Harryhausen columbia boxset which gives you a "chroma choice" . By pressing the angle button on your remote you can choose black or white or coulorised version. Dont know if this dvd has this feature though

Good story. When was this version released? Bit of a stock wait but thanks for posting.

Trailer ]here. Plus, it's got Nigel Bruce in it (best Dr Watson ever!) so it MUST be good!

:thumbsup:

Not as good as the 1965 version with Ursula Andress......mmmmmm.

Yep. She was definitely one to be obeyed.

Unfortunately it looks like this is a bare bones release. The R1 version also includes the b&w original, as well as an audio commentary.
