Prince Sergei Vorontzov (Gérard Herter) decides on the future of Hadji Murad (Steve Reeves) in THE WHITE WARRIOR

The cinematography is by Mario Bava. I have to say that the cult of Bava out there is a tad annoying. Don't get me wrong, I love Mario Bava but too many fans of Euro cinema focus too much on him while other artists/directors are overlooked or not given enough credit for the cool aspects of Italian cinema, like Riccardo Freda who directed this film. With this said I have to admit that I love the cinematography for this film. It's really gorgeous. Bava really topped himself here.
