By the Gods!

Dead female gladiators in THOR & THE AMAZON WOMEN (1963)

There are two storylines in this film: the one with Thor (Joe Robinson) an his friend Ubaratutu, played by Harry Baird, and there's the storyline with Susy Andersen, as Tamar, becoming, against her will, a warrior who has to survive a female dominated society. This scene is from the latter. It's an odd thing in that one could edit out the storyline with the two men and one would end up with a new film. The creator of this unique production, Antonio Leonviola, also did the same thing previously with a Twin Production, called TAUR THE MIGHTY (1963), which has almost the same cast, crew, locations, etc.

I thought the basic plot of the enslaved female gladiators being made to fight each other to the death was nasty.
