Film Notes

With the wave of Egyptomania that exploded after December 1922 and the news of the discovery of the unviolated tomb of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen, Raymond Dandy did not miss the opportunity to sketch a parody. The film was sold in France, Belgium, Britain, Spain, and Italy. The film, directed by Dandy himself, also featured Karl Leiter. Known under the pseudonym of Länglich, Leiter was one of the most active Austrian comics in the silent period, and Dandy found in him the ideal shoulder for his only Austrian feature film. Directed in the Viennese Listo studio, it also offered dance numbers performed by Renée Soeré. Particular attention was paid to the costumes and grandiose sets designed by Hans André.
