Description by Wikipedia

Land of the Pharaohs is a 1955 American epic film in Cinemascope, directed and produced by Howard Hawks and starring Jack Hawkins as Pharaoh Khufu (also known as Cheops) and Joan Collins as his second wife Nellifer, in a fictional account of the building of the Great Pyramid. Novelist William Faulkner was one of the three screenwriters.

The film literally had a cast of thousands (Warner Bros. press office claimed there were 9,787 extras in one scene) and was one of Hollywood's largest-scale, ancient world epics, in the spirit of The Robe, The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, and others. The film was shot on location in Egypt and in Rome's Titanus studios.
