Photo of the Day

Narona (Maria Gandini) tells Idamis (Cristina Ruspoli), Spartacus' sister, that she won't be a slave anymore in SPARTACO (1913)

This photo comes from a wonderful series which shows the film's set in stunning details, more so than the actual film. The film is 100 years old this year. I have it in my collection. There were several Italian films made about Spartacus, decades before Hollywood took over and then claim Italian films copy Hollywood stuff. The nerve.

Happy 100th anniversary.

This would be well worth showing on Peplum TV. assuming you have it and it has English language intertitles.
