By the Gods!

Peter Lupus, as Spartacus, and Piero Lulli in CHALLENGE OF THE GLADIATOR (1965)

I always wonder what actors were thinking in certain scenes, like this one. Certainly with the fact that the actors didn't speak the same language. A language barrier prevented casual chit chat during breaks. I wonder what Piero was thinking here. Lol! Anyway, one of Lupus' best PEPLUM movies, directed by Domenico Paolella, who really understood the genre.

A side note, this is one of those films with some confusion over the title: it's listed (and known) everywhere as CHALLENGE OF THE GLADIATOR but the title shown in the movie itself is CHALLENGE OF THE GLADIATORS.
