Photo of the Day

Antea, Queen of the Amazons (Gianna Maria Canale) and Jason (Fabrizio Mioni) are doomed lovers in  HERCULES (1958)

Beautiful photo. Gianna was referred to as "La Canale" in the many news reports I've watched from that period. She was really big in those days. Today, aside from fans of the PEPLUM genre, no one remembers her. As for Fabrizio, after the success of HERCULES, he left Italy and made a career in Hollywood, mostly on TV. He's still alive today.
