By the Gods!

Chelo Alonso and Livio Lorenzon are partners in crime in GOLIATH AND THE BARBARIANS

That's Arturo Dominici in the background. The two actors were regulars in the genre and often co-starred with each other. Classic PEPLUM film I can watch over and over again.

By the Gods!

Rebecca (Elizabeth Taylor) eavesdrop on Ivanhoe (Robert Taylor) in IVANHOE

Lush and colorful medieval MGM production. I enjoy it even if it's missing that spark to make it an all time classic.

Movie Poster Mondays

Italian poster of CONQUEROR OF MARACAIBO

This is one of many posters. The film is on Youtube in English. Lotsa Swashbuckling action.
