The saddest words of tongue or pen are "what might have been." This might have been a terrific movie. It has all the right ingredients: a beautiful woman in an odd situation, a background as colorful as any movie ever made, a script by veterans Lorenzo Semple and David Newman, and a

historic comic strip. So what went wrong? Blame must be laid squarely on the shoulders of John Guillermin, who directed the movie as if he weren't sure if it was adventure, comedy, or camp. A sweet child (Kathryn Gant) is lost in the African jungle and adopted by the Zambouli tribe, whose shaman

(Elizabeth of Toro, a real African queen) recalls the tribe's prophecy that a woman will protect them when things go sour. So the girl, Sheena (Tanya Roberts), grows up with the tribe in their distant region of Africa. Fletcher (Donovan Scott) and Vic Casey (Ted Wass) are US TV newsmen who have

come to the kingdom of Tigorda to film a story on Prince Otwani (Trevor Thomas), a rakehell and a rat who disposes of his brother in order to take over the country and then plans to execute Sheena's shaman for the crime. Meanwhile, Sheena recruits Casey to help her rescue the shaman. SHEENA cost

more than $25 million to make, and the returns were negligible.
