PEPLUM in Japan

Some PEPLUM stuff in Japan.

Japanese poster for HERCULES UNCHAINED. Fantastic poster.

Japanese poster for SON OF SAMSON

Recent artwork on gladiator action. Great stuff.

Gina Lollobrigida on the cover of a vintage Japanese (or is it Chinese?) magazine.

The magazine with Gina on the cover is Eiga Junkan (映画旬刊), the Japanese Film Times Fortnightly. This particular issue is from early November 1955. From what I can tell there were 17 issues in total, published from October 1955 to June 1956.
