Photo of the Day

A High Priest (Nerio Bernardi) is about to sacrifice the beautiful Manto (Alessandra Panaro) to the goddess Demeter for some much needed rain in THE BACCHANTES

One of my favorite PEPLUM films of all time. This film needs to be seen on a big screen as the direction by Giorgio Ferroni is subtle and one can appreciate the details and the beautiful camerawork throughout the film, including this beautifully composed shot, only when viewing it from a proper big transfer. This scene was also used in HERCULES VS MOLOCH, which I also like.
