Daniela Rocca and Richard Egan in ESTHER AND THE KING

Yesterday I posted a picture from ONE NIGHT WITH THE KING, which is a recent update on the story of Esther. A previous version of the story was filmed in 1960 as ESTHER AND THE KING. Daniela doesn't play Esther but Joan Collins. The film also stars Rosalba Neri...which means this film had 3 bad girls in it: Daniela, Joan and Rosalba almost always played bitchy seductresses, in PEPLUM films or not. Richard Egan would appear in THE 300 SPARTANS after this. He exuded a solid PEPLUM presence which was perfect for the genre.
