Gordon Mitchell as The Robber in FELLINI'S SATYRICON

He's one of the few stars from the PEPLUM explosion who had a role in this epic PEPLUM film by Fellini. I don't know what to make of his role though. It's also interesting that two of the genre's masterpieces, SATYRICON and the mini-series ODISSEA where made when the PEPLUM genre was just about dead. Those two productions, as good as they were, didn't spawn a new long lasting trend of epic films.
