By the Gods!

Iloosh Khoshabe and Gia Sandri in THE INVINCIBLE BROTHERS MACISTE (1964)

Sandri's character in this film is difficult to define. Is she good or bad? Iloosh, who plays the older Maciste brother, is drugged up at the moment and is under her spell. Sandri's character is using him for her own gains, including sex (though only implied). On the surface, these stories seem innocuous but today there's a good chance stories like this wouldn't be allowed. A fun and odd movie, with Iloosh in top form.
