Arcal (Renato Baldini) tries to get some answers from Theodora (Gianna Maria Canale) in THEODORA - SLAVE EMPRESS (1954)

A pre-HERCULES PEPLUM film which doesn't exactly follow history but it's greatly entertaining nonetheless. It's not shot in widescreen even if the format was just starting out then. It's probably the film's only big liability. The cast, including Baldini and Canale, is in top form.

This is a very entertaining movie, but I have not been able to find it on DVD. Do you think that Amazon.Italy may have it? I found MORGAN THE PIRATE on there along with SANDOKAN & PIRATE OF MALAYSIA a 3-pack set, but I didn't buy it because the price was a little too high. What studio owns the rights to Morgan?
