PEPLUM Babe of the Week: Rita Hayworth

The one and only Rita Hayworth in SALOME. Rita didn't make many PEPLUM films
but this one is memorable, certainly for the Dance of the 7 Veils sequence. 

A test shot for JOSEPH AND HIS BETHREN, a film that was never completed

The famous Dance of the 7 Veils

A scene from DOWN TO EARTH; it's a musical and most definitely
not a Sword & Sandal film but in it Rita plays Greek muse Terpsichore
and the film has several elaborate Greek-inspired dance sequences.
