Here's a visual comparison between RAPE OF THE SABINE WOMEN (1962), a Mexican film, and ROMULUS AND THE SABINES (1961), an Italian/Euro production, which was first made. The Mexican production stars Lorena Velázquez, Tere Velázquez, Lex Johnson and Wolf Ruvinskis. The Italian one stars Roger Moore and Mylène Demongeot, among others.

The Setting : EARLY ROME

The three main male characters

The celebration before the abduction

The main targeted female(s)

The charmer trying to seduce the female(s)

The abduction of the women

The abducted women revolting

I enjoyed the contrast. Each country had their own way of portraying the old story, but I personally liked the Spanish version better, except for the large group scenes.
