By the Gods!

No this is not the Jedi Council chamber but a scene from HEROD THE GREAT!

That's Sylvia Lopez with her back to us. She's being judged by the leaders, which will eventually lead to some form of punishment. STAR WARS owes so much to PEPLUM films, it's not funny.

Excellent point about the extensive incorporation of themes from Peplum films into the STAR WARS movies.

Borrowing from sword-and-sorcery flicks (druids, Merlin, King Arthur, etc.) is equally important. This is due to the magical/supernatural element ("The Force") in STAR WARS.
