By the Gods!

Roger Browne, Mario Novelli and Mimmo Palmara are grateful to have a flute in THE THREE SWORDS OF ROME

The set-up of the scene : a cobra was released in the bedroom in order to kill Browne's character but fortunately he had a flute and played it to subdue the deadly snake. It worked and the three are relieved. One of the last PEPLUM films ever made starring three familiar faces of the genre. I have 3 versions of this film : one extremely poor copy in Italian with washed out colours. One French version which is significantly better (and I can understand it) and this one, from an Italian TV broadcast, which is the best version yet. The only thing missing is a copy with an English dub.
