Plot synopsis

Upon receiving their honorable discharges from the British Army in 1918 Palestine, an expedition is made by Professor Holly (Peter Cushing), young Leo Vincey (John Richardson) and their manservant Job (Bernard Cribbins), into a previously unexplored region of north-east Africa. This, in turn, leads them to the lost city of Kuma. This lost realm is ruled by Ayesha (Ursula Andress), who is also known as "She-who-must-be-Obeyed". Ayesha is an immortal queen and former high priestess, who sees Leo as the identical reincarnation of her former lover, the priest Kallikrates (whom she herself killed when she found him making love to another woman over three thousand years ago). While Ayesha tries to convince Leo to participate in the rite which will make him as immortal as she is, her army is attacked by her enslaved tribesmen, the Amahagger. This attack is brought about by Ayesha's cruelty to these people, ultimately culminating in Ayesha's jealously executing the beautiful, humble girl Ustane (Rosenda Monteros). Ustane had fallen in love with Leo, much to Ayesha's implacable jealousy and fury. Ustane's father Haumeid (André Morell) who, like his daughter, had befriended Leo, Holly and Job, is naturally outraged; he leads the attack of the Amahagger. Ayesha's army loses the fierce battle against the badly equipped, but strong barbarians. Leo meanwhile, battles Bilali (Christopher Lee), Ayesha's fanatical priest, who wants immortality for himself (although it is Ayesha who kills him). Leo then becomes immortal, but Ayesha's immortality is destroyed, and she ages rapidly and dies.
