The second-to-last scene in Land of the Pharoahs is about Joan Collins‘ Princess Nellifer receiving a death sentence. She learns that she’s been deceived into allowing herself to be trapped inside the pyramid tomb of Khufu (Jack Hawkins). Trapped in an airless chamber with Khufu’s trusted friend and ally Hamar (Alex Minotis), 20 or 30 bald-headed slaves and a few torches. No escape, no food, no air-conditioning. So how does death come about? Does everyone just sit around and wait for weakness and slow suffocation to settle in? Or would some choose suicide by dagger? Even when I first saw this on TV I wondered if everyone would behave honorably or if the slaves would take advantage of this situation as far as Nellifer was concerned. Obviously a grim scenario no matter how you slice it.
