By the Gods!

Alan Steel, as Commodus, shows who's the master of gladiatorial action in THE REBEL GLADIATOR

This scene happens at the beginning of the film. Great PEPLUM and one of Alan's best roles.

I'm taking some time off so see ya soon!

Video of the Week : LAST OF THE VIKINGS - Rescue

Video of the Week : I uploaded this rescue scene from LAST OF THE VIKINGS starring Cameron Mitchell, Edmund Purdom and George Ardisson. Best scene in this entertaining flick. Music was taken from ROLAND THE MIGHTY.

I Want Him Alive! - PEPLUM Cliché

Compilation of a popular PEPLUM cliché of the bad guys wanting to keep the muscular hero alive in order to kill him later or for him to fight as a gladiator. But this rarely works and usually backfires on the villains. So what attracted them first to the hero will eventually defeat them later. Ah!

By the Gods!

Steve Reeves, as Aeneas, shows his might in THE TROJAN HORSE

Aeneas wasn't a 'superhero' but what's a Steve Reeves film without a scene showcasing his strength? Great film.

By the Gods!

Claudette Colbert is CLEOPATRA (1934)

Dramatic photo. This happens at the very start of the film which is a great way to start the film but story wise the film could have been a bit more dramatic and the ending is unsatisfying even though production is top notch.

Beautiful!  Perfectly captures the film.
