Different titles : WAR GODS OF BABYLON

Here's a quick overview of the titles for WAR GODS OF BABYLON (1962). The interesting about this title is how it the English title differs from the Italian and French. WAR GODS seems to be selling someone big and war-like when it fact it's just a threesome of two brothers of a royal family fighting over a woman. It's seems 'thunderbolt' wasn't a strong enough selling point for US distributors.


Original Italian title ;  THE SEVEN THUNDERBOLTS OF ASSUR
