Lang Jeffries, Gabriele Tinti, Rossana Podesta and Philippe Leroy in ALONE AGAINST ROME

This film is excellent but should have been so much greater, certainly with that cast. The main weakness in this film is Philippe Leroy as the bad guy who torments everyone. He's simply not menacing enough to fill in those evil shoes. The entire story depends on how hateful he is and yet when the denouement happens at the end, I didn't believe it. Philippe was miscast. The role needed someone more menacing and yet friendly enough for Rossana's character. And Lang Jeffries' character was a bit one note which didn't help in this Roman menage-a-trois. But aside from that it's a an solidly mounted PEPLUM.
