Alessandra Panaro gets the special treatment in THE SECRET MARK OF D'ARTAGNAN 

Men in PEPLUM films get tortured on a regular basis and women are tortured as well but not as frequently as men but when it happens it seems the methods or devices they use are pretty nasty like this presser. Very effective scene with a villainous Georges Marchal giving orders to continue (he's not in this screengrab). These painful sequences (which are a turn on for some) were very common in PEPLUM films, way before the recent Torture Porn genre. PEPLUM films were, again, ahead of their times and they never get credit. Arf.
