30 Greatest Moments of PEPLUM Cinema: #19 - 'Storm at Sea' from THE GIANTS OF THESSALY



This scene stands at #19 on the list.

This is a robust moment brilliantly directed by Riccardo Freda. The music by Carlo Rustichelli, which re-used repeatedly in other PEPLUM films, is also great. Roland Carey and Massimo Girotti are in this.

Well, he said, "Watch Out!" That sound stage must have flooded out the studio completely. Great waves. Was the guy who was saving the kid after he went overboard Hercules? He was very strongly built. And who was the kid? He was obviously not just a bit part.

That's Jason played by Roland Carey. It's the storey of Jason & the Argonauts. There's no Hercules character in this film.
