By the Gods!

Alfio Caltabiano (left) and Andre Lawrence (center) in SEVEN FROM THEBES (1964)

A rare film that's more serious than the standard Italian-made PEPLUM. The screenshot above is not taken from this copy but from the non-widescreen copy available in English. I just stitched two screenshots together to make that image. This film is a must see in widescreen which I have but the image is fuzzy. Trying to figure out the cast is extremely difficult since the original credits don't show anyone, including Alfio who was a regular star / stuntman in the PEPLUM genre. In fact, IMDb doesn't have Alfio credited for this film even though he plays one of the best villains in all of the genre. IMO, Alfio makes the movie. His red tunic/uniform suits him perfectly.
