By the Gods!

Feast / orgy scene from FRINE - COURTESAN OF THE ORIENT (1953)

Some racy scenes in this early PEPLUM production, including some brief scene of a topless female slave. The film was indirectly remade (with totally different storyline but same results) as APHRODITE - GODDESS OF LOVE (1958). Both films were written and directed by Mario Bonnard. It's fun to compare and spot the differences between the two, such the props and costumes. No English dubbed version exists at the moment.

An English dubbed or subtitled version of FRINE would be really great, if it had relatively good visual and audio quality.

The film was in grey scale (black and white) and the interesting posted photo has obviously been colorized. Colorization always looks terrible in my view.
