Photo of the Day

Marilù Tolo is about to become minced meat in TRIUMPH OF HERCULES

One of those wacky over-the-top torture devices that can only be found in PEPLUM films.

Actually, this isn't even the half of it. Your still--one of the best frame grabs of this scene--doesn't show that it's a test-of-strength for a weakened Hercules, who has to try to support an ever-increasing weight in order to keep her from getting well and truly tenderized.

Unlike some, this one looks like it might actually work.

Oh it would work for sure but how often do they have the chance to use it? Arf.

BTW, this an actual official (lobby card?) photo not a screen grab.
