Princess of the Nile

Princess of the Nile

In "Princess of the Nile" Debra Paget displays as much hip-wiggling and naked skin as the censors allowed in 1954. Debra is cast as Taura, a fearless 13th century princess who does her best to defend Egypt against an invading Bedouin (Michael Rennie) . For the rest acts Taura as a dancing girl. Together with Prince Haidi (Jeffrey Hunter), son of the Caliph of Baghdad she desperately tries to undermine the Bedouin's plans.
American actress Debra Paget had the sensual, exotic looks of an Arabian Nights princess which indeed she played in this early fifties exotic scenery and costumes movie.
