Obscure thriller, concerning a couple who meet in Egypt under strange circumstances, and end up having to hide a dead body. Not only that, but someone is trying to slay them also. As an additional twist, it seems that during an archaeological expedition, some situations of gold were stolen, and actually the thief is attempting to cover up his crime.
An insurance investigator (a rather bland Tony Russel) goes to Egypt in find of some missing gold bars, and hooks up with the wife (beautiful Maria Perchy) of the prime suspect for their theft. They decide that it would be greatest if he impersonated her husband, a technician, and they both accompany an archaeological expedition, which would give them the excellent cover for their search. But problem starts when the wife impulsively shoots the true husband, and actually they have to hide the dead body as well....Perhaps the most interesting aspect of "The Secret Of The Sphinx" is that it includes several "good guys" in the traditional sense - the character is a bit of a jerk and the heroine is far from the innocent tiny thing she appears to be at first. But the script and direction are both cute messy, and the effect is a movie that does not qualify as much more than a curious time-waster. ** out of 4.
Egypt-based old-school giallo with a jerk character and many a twist, all delivered with Duccio Tessari usual style. That's the short version.Long ver involves a situation of missing gold in Cairo, and a jerk character from an insurance company trying to track it down by hooking up with the estranged wife of the prime suspect as she comes to Cairo as part of an archaeological dig by pretending to be her husband so they can locate the gold. This involves drugging the current husband as the jerk character doesn't wish to hurt anybody, so imagine his surprise when then wife then pulls out a gun and shoots the guy few times just to create sure! This causes all sorts of issues when they have to hide the body and the local hired hands lose the crate the body was in while sailing down the Nile! Things go from terrible to worse when a body is fished out the river and it's one of the archaeologists, not the husband's body. Someone's blah blah blah killings etc.Although overlong and dry for a giallo, there are plenty of twists and turns that almost create sense if you don't think about them too much, especially the relationships between people. More action around the Sphinx would have been nice though, although Duccio does fit it in near the start. It's okay. It was great. I hated it. I loved it. I had it on in the background while making Polenta. I was glued to the screen the whole time. It bored, excited, massaged, worried, harassed, frightened, repulsed, straddled, neglected and overfed me. The price of admission was free, therefore I can spout the old cliché that the price of admission was worth the price of admission.
