Photo of the Day

Vercingetorix (Rik Battaglia) forces Publia (Raffaella Carrà) to read a secret stolen letter from Caesar written in Greek in CAESAR THE CONQUEROR

Publia's boyfriend is being tortured here which forces her to read the letter since Vercingetorix can't read Greek. A cool detail. Even if this film is known as a "Caesar" film it's also known indirectly as a Vercingetorix film. The real Vercingetorix is always painted and sculpted with a big Gaul mustache which this film avoided with a clean-shaven Battaglia.
