By the Gods!

Olivia (Maria Teresa Vianello) tells Jason (Roland Carey) why she's chained in THE GIANTS OF THESSALY

Roland looks baffled not because of Olivia's predicament but because of the bad acting he has to witness. Maria Teresa is, without a doubt, the worst actress to appear in a PEPLUM film. Thankfully, her screen time is short but unfortunately during that short time she has a ton of lines to say and not too convincingly. Her film career was short lived and for good reasons. I love this film but this scene is unintentionally funny and it irks me. It's one of the few dire moments of an otherwise excellent production.

Back on Monday!
