Busty PEPLUM stars


Yvonne de Carlo (THE TEN COMMANDMENTS) is hiding behind Sophia Loren (EL CID) and Gina Lollobrigida (SOLOMON & SHEBA). Great photo.

Sophia Loren (who looks like Gina) and Jayne Mansfield, of THE LOVES OF HERCULES, (try to) share the spotlight.

That second photo was in 1957 when Sophia arrived in Hollywood and La Mansfield crashed her press meeting, determined that no Italian import would upstage her in the bosom department! As Jayne was falling out of her dress she got acres of publicity .... but by then Mansfield's heyday was mainly over while Loren already a star in Italy was going international.

Didn't Jane Mansfield play the love interest in Billy The Kid, where when she was lying on some hay posed much as she was in this picture, but more clothed because of the censors, some wag in a theater yelled out from the audience, "Bombs Away!"? I'm pretty sure about that. The audience burst out laughing, too.

It was Jane Russell in Billy the Kid.
