By the Gods!

Anthony Steffen and Irène Tunc in APHRODITE - GODDESS OF LOVE

Steffen plays a sculptor who's making a statue of Aphrodite (far left) and Tunc is the woman modelling for him. Very interesting film. It's a kind of film that Hollywood would have never made. It has a purely Italian / European sensibility, which I love! Steffen went on to star in Spaghetti Westerns after the PEPLUM genre died. Tunc had a spotty film career, with a handful of Sword & Sandal films. I wrote a review for the blog ages ago.
