PEPLUM Cliché : The Raft (updated) + new blog page

There's a new blog page called PEPLUM Cliché and I'll upload all already posted clichés and future ones there. The first set is THE RAFT. I know there are more films with that cliché. I'll just have to find them and add them with these. The 1959 BEN-HUR one is probably my favourite scene in that film.
