Youtube video of the week : SALAMMBO - Intruder

Clip from Salammbo starring Jacques Sernas and Jeanne Valerie.

Contains all the necessary ingredients for a PEPLUM film : underwater scene, buff Sernas fighting a lion, climbing walls, ravishing Salammbo, fighting the brawny guards. The best moment in this wildly uneven epic.

Youtube blocked this in France and its colonies.

Most enjoyable clip!

A brief shot of Salammbo's ankles makes them appear to be chained, which is a real puzzle to me.
