By the Gods!

Brad Harris in a terrible predicament in THREE GIANTS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE (aka Return of the Gladiator)

In the early 1970s, there was a mini PEPLUM explosion, with a spat of films made between 1971 and 1974. The trend failed to catch on like it did back in the 1950s and 1960s. This film was released in 1971. I watched again recently and the script is very poor.  It's no wonder the trend failed. It's fun to watch, for a fan of the PEPLUM genre like me, but I doubt anyone else would like this.

There were a number of "Amazon" movies made about the same time. Also not very memorable.
