By the Gods!

Mel Welles, Luciana Gilli and Channing Pollock in THE RED SHEIK

A very odd PEPLUM movie (and that's saying something considering the genre) : excellent production values, amazing location filming, a thoroughly well made film and aside from a few familiar names, it stars mostly unknowns. A real head-scratcher. It's like a one hit wonder. Pollock was a magician in the US. Why did they cast him in this film, I dunno. I like it. It's a sumptuous film to watch. I just wished they actually cast bigger names in the lead roles.
