Jacques Bergerac, RIP

French actor Jacques Bergerac died on June 15. The handsome actor was mostly known as one of Ginger Rogers' many husbands. He only appeared in one PEPLUM film as far as I know, FURY OF ACHILLES, as Hector. A big role and he was very good in it. He could have easily done more PEPLUM films as his classic good looks perfectly suited the genre. RIP.

Fury of Achilles remains a perennial favourite of mine. Solid performances by all involved.
