Edy Vessel offers a drink laced with a special potion to Steve Reeves in THIEF OF BAGHDAD (1961)
This screenshot is actually taken from the documentary KOLOSSAL - I MAGNIFICO MACISTI. It's a doc that tries to cover the PEPLUM genre with behind-the-scenes footage and a confusing collection of clips. It's not really good. It was released in 1977. A better documentary of the PEPLUM genre would be cool to see (or to do by moi). This one is not it.
