By the Gods!

Leonora Ruffo and Mark Forest are a couple in GOLIATH & THE DRAGON

Leonora used to headline films back in the 1950s. By the 1960s she mostly played secondary roles, like this one or her role in HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD. She also changed her entire look, making her barely recognizable from previous films. A very talented actress who never got the career she deserved.

I agree Leonora was a first class actress - probably best remembered today for her leading role in "The Queen of Sheba."

However, during the Peplum era she tended to be overshadowed by Gianna Maria Canale. Gianna was not necessarily a better actress, but she did have more memorable looks (that profile!).
