By the Gods!

Adrasto (Alberto Farnese, seated) and Antineus (Raf Baldassarre, far right) listen to the message from Argo's blind father (Massimo Pianforini), who's helped by little man (Salvatore Furnari) in THE GIANT OF THESSALY

Blind people appeared often in PEPLUM films and this week I'll give a couple of examples of this. Blind people are often portrayed as wise or having the ability in perceiving things beyond our material world. I like this scene, certainly with Salvatore helping him. Alberto is slimy perfection and Raf is badass in this great film.
