PEPLUM Babe of the Month: MARA LANE

British-Austrian model Mara Lane is the PEPLUM Babe for December. Mara was one of the most sought after models of the 1950s and made several films during that decade and appeared in two PEPLUM films in the 1960s, 79 AD THE DESTRUCTION OF HERCULANEUM and THE OLD TESTAMENT, both starring Brad Harris, before disappearing from the face of the earth. Mara was memorable in both films, certainly 79 AD, which is one of my favourite PEP films. Mara, where are you?

Wow, she is quite the looker.

She should of been making tons of movies, but then she was a model-very sexy too. Guess that maybe she settled down and raised a family.

Or maybe she just got fat.
