Photo of the Day

Polynices (Mimmo Palmara) and Eteocles (Sergio Fantoni) are burned on a pyre in HERCULES UNCHAINED

Even if you've already seen HERCULES UNCHAINED several times before this might be the first time you finally get to see this super brief scene as it was shot, which is hard to come by. In the full screen version available in North America, the heads are cropped off so you don't see who's who. In the widescreen copy from the German DVD that I've been playing on PEPLUM TV, it is cut entirely. This screenshot is from the Italian DVD I recently got and it's not in full widescreen but it's better than nothing. I always thought this moment was way too short and it felt a bit rushed.
