Blondes vs Brunettes in PEPLUM films

In the PEPLUM universe, blondes are almost always the good ones while dark haired or brunette characters are always evil or femme fatales. It's quite predictable...some say almost insulting. There are some PEPLUM films which bucks this predictable trend and here are a couple of examples.

 Aetna (Bella Cortez) is the good one while Venus (Annie Gorassini) is the evil one in VULCAN - SON OF JUPITER

Brunette Gianna Maria Canale is the good gal vs Scilla Gabel, the blonde evil nemesis in THE QUEEN OF THE PIRATES

Ziva Rodann, good, vs blonde Nadia Sanders, the evil witch, in THE GIANTS OF THESSALY
