Same set, different films

This set was often used in PEPLUM films. Here are two examples. They simply repainted the surface to make it look slightly different.

from URSUS & THE TARTAR PRINCESS (1961)

from ALI BABA & THE SEVEN SARACENS (1964)

Good Catch!

Did the various Italian studios making Peplums in the late 50s and early 60s share sets and costumes, or was their rivalry too strong to permit this seemingly sensible action?

There were several different studios in Italy but most of them shared everything : sets, props, costumes

I've been doing these 'Same____, Different Films" posts for years now
