blonde actress Susy Andersen was the surprise attraction to this
sword-and-sandal, muscleman film. She played the enticing Tamar,
deposed princess of Babylos who is abducted by Amazon women and forced
into the gladiatrix arena. Tamar is a strong woman with a great
understanding of right and wrong. She is hardly the helpless
female of the story. In fact, she has the greatest heroic
characteristics of anyone in the film.
When the movie first opens, you see Susy Andersen
top billed over Joe Robinson, who plays Thor. It doesn't take
long to see why. Tamar IS the primary character in this
film. She survives the gladiator arena, kills the evil Black
Queen, and ultimately regains control of her throne.
For a while, near the end, we almost think Tamar is
dead. At the very end of the film, though, we see Tamar is still
alive. I like it that she lives, and only wish that this
character had continued in other films. Tamar is very feminine,
very strong, and very capable. These are great traits for any
film heroine to have.
