Nippur (Gordon Scott) ends the reign of Balthazar (Piero Lulli) in HERO OF BABYLON

Great PEPLUM: action packed, tight, good production and well cast, this is one of those Sword & Sandal films I can watch over and over again. I got a widescreen copy of this, in English no less, from a British TV broadcast and this specific shot (a spoiler, I know) was cut from it. It was deemed to violent, I guess. This screenshot is from another version. It's infuriating: I finally get this film in English and widescreen and one of the most important scenes in the film was removed.

I'll be using this shot for an upcoming update on PEPLUM Rules.
