FAROUK - LAST OF THE PHARAOHS

UK, 1970 (MIFF 1973)

Director: Peter Batty

The life-story of one of the most notorious figures of this century. He was reviled and ridiculed by generations of Allied servicemen and international gossip columnists, yet when Farouk became Egypt's king in 1936 at the tender age of 16, he was idolised by his subjects who considered him a Redeemer.
