Retro Friday : Location - Palinuro Arch in Campania

(originally posted December 2011)


The Palinuro arch near the coastal city of Palinuro in the Italian province of Campania. A couple of films went on location there, including JASON & THE ARGONAUTS (1963) and HERCULES AND THE CAPTIVE WOMEN (1961).

Neat to put a name to the locale in Argonauts!

Loved this film. Only movie I ever watched together with my distant cousin Dan Smith, who ironically became US ambassador to Greece.
