Photo of the Day

Ulysses (Georges Marchal) tries to outwit King Lagos (Gianni Santuccio) in ULYSSES AGAINST HERCULES.

Tuesday, I posted a great acting/dialogue scene from THE BACCHANTES and this scene from ULYSSES AGAINST HERCULES is as equally great. King Lagos, wonderfully played by Santuccio, is unforgettably crazy. The colors are great. Georges Marchal is at his finest here, acting-wise and look-wise. Marchal is Ulysses. And Raffaella Carrà, in yellow, is memorable as the tormented "maiden." One of my all time favorite PEPLUM films, even if many don't seem to like it.

I agree with you Santuccio was great as the wacko king, and Marchal played a very witty Ulysses. This is a fun PEP.
