Lesley-Anne Down (Upstairs, Downstairs), Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) and Sir John Gielgud (Arthur) star in this occult-tinged thriller based on the best seller by Robin Cook. Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner (Patton), Sphinx bristles with peril and shines with the eye-dazzling landmarks of ancient Egypt – as well as a close up look at the lavish treasures of Tutankhamun, filmed with special permission. A determined young anthropologist (Down) has come across a clue leading to a long-forgotten royal tomb. She pays no mind to the notion that Egypt’s last undiscovered treasure may carry a curse – and perhaps that there may be some black marketeers eager to sustain the illusion of such a curse . . . in a fashion as terrifying as any scary ancient legend.
