By the Gods!

Resistence is futile for Abucar (Bruno Piergentili aka Dan Harrison) in MACISTE IN KING SOLOMON'S MINES.

I think he gets the point. This is a definite PEPLUM cliche. Bruno is a PEPLUM star who had two major lead roles in films of the genre but very little is known about him.

Back next week!

Video of the Week : VULCAN - SON OF JUPITER - Venus, Vulcan and Mars!

The Video of the Week is a PEPLUM love triangle from VULCAN - SON OF JUPITER which ends up with a fight between Vulcan (Iloosh Khoshabe) and Mars (Roger Browne). Venus is played by Annie Gorassini.

Probably the sexiest PEPLUM film ever!

By the Gods!

Gordon Scott tries to budge a dead tree down in order to use it as a bridge in THE COLOSSUS OF ROME (aka Hero of Rome)

I love this film. Really underrated. It has some great scenes but overall it's the solid quality of the production which makes it good. The scene/shot just before this one sorta leaves nothing to the imagination regarding Gordon's, huh, virility. I could have posted it but I think it would have shocked some sensibilities of some folks out there. Ah!

Movie Poster Mondays

Spanish poster for ALEXANDER THE GREAT

Cool poster but decidedly different than the one for the re-released which showed Alexander full of muscles.
