Another infamous flop from the creative team of producer Howard Hughes and actor John Wayne, who had also teamed on THE CONQUEROR (also available on Google Video). This film actually went into production in 1949, but wasnt finished and ready for an official release until 1957 (the year after the release of the Genghis Khan film). Directed by Josef Von Sternberg. Co-starring Janet Leigh. Great fun for bad movie buffs!
