Wardrobe malfunctions!

Actors in PEPLUM films often wear skimpy costumes so wardrobe malfunctions were a common thing.

There are many more examples. I'm thinking of doing a permanent page for this subject (and other revealing moments in PEPLUM films) and update it periodically. Agree or not?

Anyway, I created a permanent page for this topic: Wardrobe Malfunctions and Other Revealing Moments!


Tina Louise in SIEGE OF SYRACUSE (1960) falls on the floor on a ship after being pushed (which causes amnesia) and her brief stunt work inadvertently exposed her right nipple. I wonder how this got past censors.




Mark Forest in HERCULES AGAINST THE SONS OF THE SUN (1964), his super short toga meant a lot of exposure including this scene during the exciting climax. Oops...



This might not be considered a 'wardrobe malfunction' since she's not wearing any clothes but it's the same thing. Honor Blackman in THE LAST ROMAN (1968). She's taking a bath and the water undulates, which briefly reveals her nipples. I uploaded this film last week on Youtube. Someone flagged it and it has been set on restricted adult mode just because of this short scene. I had to remove the movie from my channel.



Brad Harris in 79 AD: THE DESTRUCTION OF HERCULANEUM (1962) revealed more than was intended. In the full screen version (above), an animated red dot was added by censors to cover the wardrobe malfunction. In the widescreen version (below), this scene is cropped out at the bottom. Carlo Tamberlani seems to notice the malfunction.



The love scene in SALAMMBO (1960) with Jacques Sernas and Jeanne Valerie. A brief but visible wardrobe malfunction. This shot was cut from the US version.


Spartaco Nale drops in and flashes his rump to the audience in DUEL OF THE TITANS (1961). There are plenty of wardrobe malfunctions in this film.
