The Moon of Israel (German: Die Sklavenkönigin, or "The Queen of the Slaves") is an Austrian epic film of 1924.It was directed by Mihaly Kertész (later Michael Curtiz). The script was written by Ladislaus Vajda, based on H. Rider Haggard's novel The Moon of Israel, which in its turn was inspired by the Biblical story of the Exodus.It was this film that brought Kertész to the attention of the studio head Jack Warner, who invited him to Hollywood in 1926, where he rapidly became Michael Curtiz and made a career with the Warner Studios.Shooting took place in Vienna with about 5,000 extras, in the studios of Sascha-Film, and outdoors on the Laaer Berg. The premiere was on 24 October 1924. The restored complete edition of the film, which was entirely lost for many years, was first shown on 26 February 2005 in the Wiener Metro Kino.
