King Solomon's Treasure is a 1979 British-Canadian low-budget film based on the novels King Solomon's Mines and Allan Quatermain by H. Rider Haggard. It stars John Colicos as Allan Quatermain, as well as David McCallum, Britt Ekland, and Patrick Macnee who replaced Terry-Thomas.[1]



TV Guide had this to say about the film: "The cast of seasoned veterans (McCallum, Macnee, Ekland) contribute embarrassingly bad performances. Surprisingly, though, the photography—the film is shot on location in Africa as well as in London and Canadian studios—is not bad at all."[2]
