Ruth Roman and Akim Tamiroff in DESERT DESPERADOS (aka The Sinner, UK title)

A very obscure Sword & Sandal film, on many levels: Ruth never really made any major Sword & Sandal film in her spotty career so I never thought or bothered to see if she did; I've never seen it available anywhere on any bootleg dvd or vhs; the US title of DESERT DESPERADOS is horrible and might explain its obscurity. It sounds more like a Mexican Western than a PEPLUM. Added to my list of PEP films I need to see.

I remember seeing this movie on TV back in the late 60's. This is definitely a PEPLUM it is a little different then many others, it does have action and plenty of desert. I hope you can obtain a copy of it, I have been searching, but no luck.

I know someplace which has a 16mm copy of the film. I'm thinking of buying it and digitally transferring it.
