I have to do a Fan Dub of this film. I have a nice Italian copy (screeshot above) but the English version is pretty poor. So I need to add the English track to this copy. From what I saw of the film, it looks like a fun film but with some sloppy editing here and there.
Back on Monday!
This is proof it was released for the US market so where's the English version which is impossible to find?
I'm testing GIF animation files here at the blog. I like them but they are sometimes too big. This file is nearly 8 megs, much larger than the actual video file. Is this file loading up fast or slow? I love this scene and Steve's 'don't mess with me' expression.
GIF animated images are possible at the Tumblr blog but the files cannot be larger than 1 meg. Do you want me to add more GIF animation scenes here at the blog?

Bangor (Paul Wynter) serves up breakfast in MACISTE VS THE MOLE MEN
Won the Mr Universe title twice. He should have had his own leading role in a PEPLUM film.
Yesterday I posted photos of Penélope Cruz wearing a Grecian dress at the Oscars ®. Here are two real Greek sculptures of a wind goddess (400 B.C.) and a figurine of a peplos (mid-5th century B.C., below)

Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes in 300 : RISE OF AN EMPIRE
Rodrigo reprises his role he made famous 8 years ago in 300 (2006). The release date is this upcoming Friday. Now this is the third PEPLUM film released this year and if it bombs badly at the box office it'll surely signal the end of the genre. It might open at no 1 but we'll have to wait and see the b.o. results.
Cool photo of 4 stars of European cinema and PEPLUM films.
Claudine Auger (KALI YUG - GODDESS OF VENGEANCE), Virna Lisi (DUEL OF THE TITANS), Ursula Andress (SHE), Marisa Mell (DIABOLIK)

Two tavern whores fight over Hercules (Alan Steel) in HERCULES AGAINST ROME
I always love these scenes in 'family' films. It's understandable that the women fought over him: he could be rich and he's decent looking too. Ah!
