Photo of the Day

Catherine the Great (Hildegard Knef), Count Poniatowski (Giacomo Rossi-Stuart) and a maiden (Ángela Cavo) re-enact a scene from a play in CATHERINE OF RUSSIA

They're wearing togas and stolas for the play but the story takes place in the 18th century. A well mounted production with a host of PEPLUM actors and directed by a veteran of the genre, Umberto Lenzi. I like it but I'm looking for the English track of this. I have the French version. Such costume dramas or Swashbucklers were as popular if not more so than Greco-Roman ones.
