By the Gods!

Ursus (Ed Fury) is tested during a feat of strength / endurance from URSUS IN THE LAND OF FIRE (1963)

That should be Luciana Gilli as the woman tied between chariots, even though it might be a stunt double. This scene is one of the most over-the-top 'feat of strength' scenes in any PEPLUM film. Because of the difficulty of setting up this moment, the camera work is too often discretionary to get a full view of what's going on. This is one of the rare full shots of the event. The entire moment in this scene is action packed. I like this film. The Ursus films were filled with more villains, and violence and treachery than any PEPLUM series. I'll do a Fan Dub of this soon enough. It will be uncut, unlike the one available on the internet now.
