PEPLUM couple

Peplum couple Linda Christian and Tyrone Power. Both were married for 7 years. Their marriage took place in a big ceremony in Rome which made news all over the world. Both actors would appear in PEPLUM films throughout their careers.

They had two children together, including Taryn Power who would eventually leave her mark in the PEPLUM world.

After divorcing Tyrone, Linda would marry Edmund Purdom. The marriage lasted only 1 year. Both Linda and Edmund starred together in ATHENA (1954), which also starred Steve Reeves. I wonder if something happened between Ed and Linda while shooting ATHENA. Hmm...

Linda as Princess Panthea in SLAVES OF BABYLON. That's Richard Conte in the background.
