Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold

I wonder what more-famous franchise inspired this turkey?

"Sharon Stone...was nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress for this role, for which she lost to Madonna for Who's That Girl."

How can anyone not like this movie? I mean, Richard Chamberlain as Allan Quatermain, Sharon Stone as Jesse Huston, James Earl Jones as Umslopogaas, and Henry Silva as Agon (great villain as all ways). For me it is entertainment with a way to spend an hour and a half not doing much of anything. A change from reading novels either fiction or historical.

I remember this as a drive-in offering at the time. Apparently it didn't make enough of a splash in an indoor theater.

Well, it's no Cannibal Holocaust (1980), but it is watchable.

Don't forget Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson as Queen Sorais. The whole movie was so over the top it survived on sheer momentum. It never slowed down long enough for you to realize how bad it was.

I especially like that though it clearly says "Quatermain," the announcer can't stop saying "Quartermain."

That movie did not take itself seriously. The production values were high and consistent. Really now, the scene where they are being cooked in a giant iron pot. That is so cartoonish and over the top. Richard Chamberlain played it to the hilt. The action was non stop. I enjoyed it very much. What were people expecting, The African Queen II?
