Cast & Crew
Nicholas Ainsworth, a young American archeologist, discovers in Egypt the lost tomb of two lovers, Princess Herath and Aziru. He is so engrossed in his work that he neglects his wife, Joan, who carries on flirtations with an Englishman, an American, and a Frenchman. An Egyptian prince, a tomb robber, gives Nicky a book recounting the story of the two lovers and warns him of the curse laid upon the tomb by a pharaoh in 2000 B. C. Joan is captured by Bedouins but is rescued by the prince. Nicky misinterprets the situation and angrily accuses Joan of running off with the prince, whereupon she leaves Nicky and accepts the attentions of the prince. Joan learns that Nicky has returned to the tomb and rides to warn him of the curse. Both are trapped when the tomb is sealed by an explosion. The prince is killed by a falling rock at the moment he clears a passage for them. Nicky realizes his love for Joan, and they are reunited.
