Seems like a cool movie, too bad it's out of print. Sorry, not in print! ;o)

Too bad that film is out of print. It sounds like something I would like to see. I guess I will have to wait until it comes to television or is back in print. Does anybody know whether this version is as good as the 1965 one with Ursula Andress, Peter Cushing, and Christopher Lee and/or the 1935 version with Helen Gallaghn, Randolph Scott, and Nigel Bruce of Sherlock Holmes fame?

Janne said it was a good film but I'm not so sure after seeing the clip....

One thing none of you have said is that Sandahl (She) is unbelievably HOT and seeing her gorgeous legs makes it work for me. The film is definitely worth seeing though, not just for sexy Sandahl, but also because it is such hilarious rubbish.

I use to watch this movie back to back with Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon (which I own on DVD now) on USA's Up All Night. If only I could find SHE on dvd.

I wonder if the Wachowski brothers were inspired to do the fight with Agent Smith multiples in Matrix Reloaded by the 'similar' scene with the Xenon(s)..

You can get she on DVD in England, check, it's an absolutely awful moviw though. Sandahl Begman is sexy though, but she is about as goddesslike as a wet fish! The poor thing should've tried acting lessons. She was funny in Red Sonja though!

I've got the UK disc.  Presentation-wise, it's bare bones at best, but it was affordable and the only way to currently get it.

I can remember this movie blowing my mind when I was a kid.  Like the mind-bending Lou Ferrigno "Hercules" flicks, it's very genre-spanning, with roots in Sword & Sorcery and Post Apocalyptic adventure.  Aside from the inclusion of the immortal and unnamed goddess (who bathes in a sacred spring, not a flame) and the outsider hero She takes a shine to, there's only a passing resemblance to the Haggard tale.  Happily, with the exception of the marauding band of surly warlords, the movie opts to bypass the traditional "Road Warrior" After-The-Fall motif and opts to give us an earth that's degenerated into Medieval Feudalism.  All that remains is an array of isolated fiefdoms, each with its own resident deity and/or insular populace.  Radiation-plagued mutants, aerobicized Amazons, an order of priests lorded over by a Jim Jones-style telekinetic, urban primitives, cannibal vampires, and backwoods mad scientists comprise the world's Neo-People.

Yes, this is trashy and low-end, but it's also clever, self-satirical, and madcap.  The soundtrack is all over the place, with Heavy Metal, Disco, Funk, and even a sentimental closing credits love ballad illustrating just how wildly schizophrenic an offering this is.  The women are actually quite formidable and courageous -- Bergman moves like a panther in heat -- while the men seem mercenary and passive in comparison.  In its way this is a relic of an entertaining genre and decade that fell by the wayside and probably will never come back.
