Giancarlo Prete - mini-profile

Here are all the scenes with Giancarlo Prete in MESSALINA MESSALINA, a raunchy comedy made on the sets of CALIGULA. The film is sorta forgettable except for a few things, and one of those things is seeing Prete in a PEPLUM. He was perfect for the genre but alas by that time almost no one made those kind of films anymore. He also had a small role in LADYHAWKE.

Giancarlo died at the age of 58 in 2001.

SPACE 1999 fans (like me) will remember him from the THE TROUBLED SPIRIT episode.

PEP fans might also recognize the soldier Giancarlo fights with at the end: it's Salvatore Borghese who was also in the TEN GLADIATORS films among others.
