By the Gods!

Queen Tenefi (Ljubica Otasevic) is informed of Maciste by Thermal (Aldo Bufi Landi) in TRIUMPH OF MACISTE (1961)

I watched a French version of this classic PEPLUM (thanks Alan) and I have to say that it was one of the best dub work I've ever seen. The voices matched the actors and everything was seamless. In the English version, the voice actress for Ljubica Otasevic is the very familiar one who almost always dubbed the same roles which sorta take me out of the story. Otasevic's performance is memorable, in a silent cinema kinda of way. Her acting is difficult to describe but let's just say that it's entertaining. According to IMDb, she only made 5 movies and this was her second to last production. I don't know what happened to her but her acting wasn't the most astute. Very campy which was perfect here. As for Aldo Bufi Landi (face hidden), he gives great support. I really like him in this movie. I could write a whole background story for his character.

I made a Fan Dub of this film and uploaded it to PEPLUM TV channel. I also uploaded a 'Feat of Strength' clip which has over 3 million views.
