PEPLUM Behind the Scenes

Sergio Leone directs a scene from THE COLOSSUS OF RHODES while 
Rory Calhoun watches on. Looks like a heated moment there.

Did you know that Sergio Leone wanted Rory Calhoun to play in FIST FULL OF DOLLARS? Due to other commitments Rory could not do it, instead he recommended a young a actor named Clint Eastwood the rest is history. This movie is a great spectacle!! I saw it on the big screen when growing up. At nearly 130 minutes long it was great, but I wonder what is missing since the European version is at about 150 minutes.

Yes, I'm into comics, there's a PEPLUM Comix Corner on the blogs. I'll try to check it out.
