By the Gods!

Esther (Joan Collins) confronts a rival, Keresh (Rosalba Neri), in ESTHER & THE KING

I got hold of a nice widescreen copy of this. Finally. Not the greatest PEPLUM but it's still very entertaining and nice to look at. The difference between this copy and the 4:3 standard version out there is startling. Joan made a couple of PEPLUM films during her career, which was mostly on TV. Rosalba was a real PEPLUM star. She made tons of them.

Is the version of this movie that you have from 20TH Century Fox Archives (Classics}??

I got it from a trade so I don't know the source.

I love the way Rosalba is glaring at Joan!

Catfights - at least at the verbal rather than the physical level - can be expected.

Rosalba was really beautiful, with a supere profile.
