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.
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!
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.
