By the Gods!

Marilù Tolo and Mark Forest in MACISTE - GLADIATOR OF SPARTA (1964)

A 20 year old Marilù Tolo is the 'evil' temptress to Forest's Maciste. Her role in the film is almost secondary. This is one of those 'twin productions' which I'll post about next week, with THE MAGNIFICENT GLADIATOR (1964) being the other film. In the latter movie, Marilù's role is more important and she and Mark are lovers, which works better. The two had chemistry together. Their scenes are a bit awkward in this movie. The 'official' English title is the boneheaded 'Terror of Rome Against the Son of Hercules.'
