Should be a gay cult classic if it isn't one already . . .

Audience Reviews for Colossus and the Amazon Queen

Shot in 1960, meant as a sort of tongue-in-cheek romp through the sword-and-sandal genre popular in Italy at the time, and fleshed out with a couple of jazzy dance numbers, this adventure finds Hope and Crosby (!) stranded on an island where women call the shots and men are only sex slaves. Our stars wink at each other and snigger. If only they'd 've put as much effort in the writing as they did the dance numbers.

Taken within the confines of the genre this is a humorous silly adventure. What sets it apart slightly from the usual run of the mill is an odd jazz flavored score and the presence of Rod Taylor at the beginning of his career. Within a few years he's be working for Hitchcock starring in The Birds as well as appearing in other big budget films like The V.I.P.S. and The Time Machine something that no one else in the cast or any other of these sex and sandal flicks ever got remotely close too.
