By the Gods!

Semiramis (Rhonda Fleming) offends King Assur (Rodalno Lupi) in QUEEN OF BABYLON (1954)

This forgotten movie has very little to do with the actual legend of Semiramis but who cares, it's fun. A mix of romance and adventure, with Rhonda game to play the feisty heroine. I've been trying to make a Fan Dub of this film since forever. I have the English copy but the image is washed out. It's watchable but there are better copies out there. Unfortunately, this film was one of those which had more than one final cut. The German, Spanish and Italian versions do not match the US version. It was impossible to align the English track with the image from those copies. I finally got a copy of the one shown in France, and eureka, it matches the US version. So I'm currently working on a Fan Dub as of this writing. I'll upload to PEPLUM TV once it's completed!
