Photo of the Day

Spartacus (Peter Lupus) is in a precarious situation in CHALLENGE OF THE GLADIATOR

Though this scene didn't make it in the top 30 Greatest Moments of PELUM Cinema it's moments like these which instantly pop up into my mind when someone asks me to describe the genre: muscular hero caught in some improbable death trap which can kill him instantly if he tries to escape. What other genre in the world of cinema had these over-the-top moments? Not many.
