By the Gods!

John Drew Barrymore, Linda Cristal and Armando Francioli, as Ramses prince of Thebes, in THE PHARAOHS' WOMAN (1960)

I'm in a conundrum here. I have this film in 4:3 aspect ratio, in English, and somewhat fuzzy but watchable. The colours are good but not great. I could upload as is. I also have a widescreen copy which tends to look like sepia color and it is darker but in French. I'm thinking of doing a Fan Dub of this even though I wished the widescreen copy was in better shape. The most important thing though, director Viktor Tourjansky's use of the widescreen format makes it almost impossible to watch in 4:3 format since so much is missing. I've uploaded a preview copy of this. Let me know if you like it. It'll be officially posted on Thursday here at the blog but you can go to PEPLUM TV to check it out now

Thanks for the preview.

This definitely looks like a fun movie. I agree widescreen is the way to go.

Colors are OK, but it might be less distracting if you could convert the film to grayscale.

Definitely widescreen and the colors aren't distracting at all.

Widescreen is only way to do this. Colors aren't really distracting.
