By the Gods!

Mark Forest, as Arian, in THE LION OF THEBES (1964)

This is the beginning of the climax. The ending to this film is one of my favourite, to the point of nearly eclipsing the rest of the film. Not to sound cliched, but it rocks! The only thing I can critique about it is how Mark's stunt double is pretty much obvious, by the great Giovanni Cianfriglia. Giovanni is on the thin side, while Mark is beefier. But it's not really a big criticism since I enjoy watching Giovanni's robust stunt work. Directed by the amazing Giorgio Ferroni.
