By the Gods!

Leonardo Severini and Hélène Chanel watch some spectacle in SAMSON & THE 7 MIRACLES OF THE WORLD

This scene is cut from the US edition. A good 10 to 15 minutes were cut from the original version directed by Riccardo Freda. The changes are not that earth-shattering to the story...it simply sets up the world the story takes place in. The beautiful Hélène Chanel doesn't make a convincing Chinese woman. Hélène appeared in many classic PEPLUM films and she's one of the underrated Queens of the genre.
