Gorgia (Enrico Maria Salerno) teases Diana (Tina Louise) in SIEGE OF SYRACUSE

Both actors would appear in another film directed by Pietro Francisci, SAPPHO - THE VENUS OF LESBOS. Enrico plays villains in both films. SIEGE OF SYRACUSE is more serious than action-packed SAPPPHO and Enrico's character here is less of a caricature than the mad Emperor he plays in the other Francisci film. I like this scene. They play entertainers traveling through Sicily. Tina's 'illusion' dress always seems to be about to spill over.
