Goliath (Arnaldo Fabrizio) teases a Roman soldier (Aldo Pini) in SEVEN SLAVES AGAINST ROME

Little people in PEPLUM films are always good and are always used for comedic purposes. They're sorta like court-jesters of the genre. The majority of PEPLUM films didn't have them (thank god!), Director Michele Lupo, director of this film, had a quasi-obsession with them and the way he used them was always a bit much. Arnaldo's scenes often stop the film in its tracks or take me out of the story.
