She is the most beautiful woman in the world, or she was. A Classical Age celebrity with a face that still launches a thousand magazine covers, the Queen of ancient Sparta has been trapped for 17 years in what looks suspiciously like a 1950s Egyptian hotel room, armed with a fly-swatter, trying to get an old TV set to work long enough to tell her news of the war being fought for her honor. She’s a sulky Sleeping Beauty waiting for her Prince (actually her King and husband) to come and rescue her.
