30 Greatest Moments of PEPLUM Cinema: #1 - 'The Golden Fleece' from THE GIANTS OF THESSALY

Counting down the top 30 Greatest MOMENTS and this scene stands at #1 on the list.

EPIC moment brilliantly directed by Riccardo Freda. Jason (Roland Carey) looks like an ant crawling up the giant landscape perfectly exemplifying the quest, or the eternal struggle between mankind vs the gods, in a visual manner in 9 minutes. Roland Carey was an experienced rock climber in real life so this came in handy when it came to shooting this epic PEPLUM moment.

The Golden Fleece quest was part of the HERCULES storyline and as much as I love it this one beats it by a mile.

With Roland Carey, Massimo Girotti and all. Directed by Riccardo Freda.
