Sleeping Leonora

It seems that every time Leonora Ruffo is in a PEPLUM film we always find her sprawled from head to toe because of exhaustion, a spell, she fainted or is crying over a loved one. Here's a brief overview:

From THE QUEEN OF SHEBA :  Leonora is exhausted after a big battle.

In SWORD WITHOUT A COUNTRY : Leonora is resting because she's sad.

 
In SWORD WITHOUT A COUNTRY again : Leonora is sprawled on the ground after fainting.

In GOLIATH & THE DRAGON : Leonora faints from a spell/fright/exhaustion

In GOLIATH AND THE VAMPIRES : Gordon Scott is sad that Leonora is caught in a spell/might be dead

In HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD : Leonora is seemingly brought back to life at the start of the film.

In HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD : Leonora faints after battling with Christopher Lee with magic.

In HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD : During the film's climax, Leonora is to be sacrificed by Christopher Lee.
