Photo of the Day

Messalina (Yvonne Sanson) and Nero (Gino Cervi) plot something in NERO & THE BURNING OF ROME (Italian title: Nerone e Messalina)

One of those films I haven't seen and never saw it available anywhere. Gino Cervi was an actor that was pretty much in demand. He was great in THE QUEEN OF SHEBA and other PEPLUM films (a few directed by Pietro Francisci). Yvonne Sanson was a popular French actress, with a perfect PEPLUM name. She was a household name back in the day but today, like Gino, she's mostly forgotten. I tried to find a scene of Nero playing with his lyre but couldn't find one.
