By the Gods!

Mylène Demongeot in GOLD FOR THE CAESARS (1963)

I really like Mylène in this film, even with the anachronistic hairdo and style. She's caught in a terrible threesome and she's quite right for the role : pouting and sultry. A woman not happy with the circumstances she's in. This film has everything going for it and it could have been one of the greats but it's missing just a few elements to make it a home run. But as 'serious' PEPLUM films go, it's one of the tops.

I have never had a chance to see it.

Any possibility it could run on PeplumTV? (assuming your copy has decent audio and video quality). Either subtitles or fan dubbing would be fine.

Hi, I've been skimming your blog for a while now after having enjoyed films like "Amazons of Rome" and "Sword of the Conqueror" on a now-defunct digital OTA channel called The Works. I like the "serious" films in the genre best so far. Did you ever make a list of "serious" ones like this?

Warner Archives has an excellent DVD of this movie in Widescreen Format. There many online retailers such as Amazon, Oldies.com that have this movie available.

In order to upload it to Youtube, I need to know if there are any copyright restrictions

Hi Alec! Welcome to the blog. Good idea. I might just do such a list. :-)
