Retro Friday : Old posts updated (originally posted on November 27, 2010)
The shot above showing an army leaving a castle/fortress has been used and re-used in at least a dozen PEPLUM flicks. This screenshot was taken from CHALLENGE OF THE GLADIATOR.
I still do not know the original source but it looks more medieval than Roman.
The footage was from CONSTANTINE & THE CROSS (below), one of the most 'sampled' titles by other PEPLUM films.
