By the Gods!

Brad Harris and Mara Lane in THE OLD TESTAMENT (1962)

Director Gianfranco Parolini directed this somewhat overlooked film. Parolini often worked with Brad Harris. This includes the KOMMISSAR X Eurospy series they made together. Aside from FURY OF HERCULES, which his least 'stunning' looking film, almost all of his PEPLUM productions are beautifully shot, such as this one and his masterpiece, 79 AD : THE DESTRUCTION OF HERCULANEUM. His films looked like tableaux. Parolini is still alive today.

Any chance you could make a fan dub or subtitles for AD 79: THE DESTRUCTION OF HERCULANEUM?

YouTube has the complete movie with excellent visual quality, but only in Italian with no subs.

I have a FanDub of 79 AD. I even posted clips here at the blog which I've uploaded at Dailymotion. I can't upload it at Youtube because some fake enterprise claims they own the right to it.
