By the Gods!

Debra Paget and Ettore Manni in CLEOPATRA'S DAUGHTER (1960)

This is an interesting movie, behind the scenes and the film itself. The original Italian version has nothing to do with Cleopatra. US distributors bought the rights to this and changed the storyline in order to capitalize on the soon to be made super hyped Hollywood film, CLEOPATRA (1963). This 90 minutes movie is more entertaining than the 3+ hours of the Elizabeth Taylor film (depending on which version). I really like it, whichever version I watch. This screenshot is taken from a French copy which I've uploaded to PEPLUM TV WORLD. I'd like to do a Fan Dub with it but the image, as nice as it is, is quite soft / blurry. I'll have to think about it. Paget retired from the wicked film industry and became a born-again christian.
