PEPLUM Cliché : Seeing double (update)

Twins or doubles can be considered a cliché even though this plot point doesn't happen too often in PEPLUM flicks. Here's a few films with twins, usually one good and one evil, or bad guys morphed into the likeness of our Hero. I've updated the list from a previous post.

Laetitia Casta as Falbala in ASTERIX AND OBELIX VS CAESAR

Maria Montez plays twins in COBRA WOMAN; Tollea, left, is the good peasant and on the right, Naja, the evil Queen.

Rosanna Schiaffino plays estranged twins in THE MINOTAUR; it's a good role for her.

Gordon Scott fights with himself, in one of the best scenes in PEPLUM history, as evil Kobrak takes his shape, from GOLIATH & THE VAMPIRES.

Richard Greene times two in THE BANDITS OF CORSICA. Good film.

Robert Malcolm plays a dual role in SINBAD AND THE CALIPH OF BAGHDAD
