Lisa Gastoni is surprised by an intruding Walter Barnes in QUEEN OF THE SEAS

Not to be confused with QUEEN OF THE PIRATES starring Gianna Maria Canale, this well mounted adventure was one of several made during the PEPLUM explosion with a lead actress in an action film. In a way, those films were way ahead of their time, cheesecake shot notwithstanding. I love Lisa Gastoni, certainly after seeing her as Messalina in THE LAST GLADIATOR. She was perfect in it. The main problem I have with Lisa is that she was a chameleon of sorts; she rarely looked the same in every film she made, while someone like Gianna Maria Canale had a certain unforgettable look which was great to see.

This could be a fun flick. Do you have a decent copy for future screening on Peplum TV?

I'll definitely play it again on PEPLUM TV.
