By the Gods!

Rhonda Fleming, Serge Gainsbourg and Van Aikens in REVOLT OF THE SLAVES (1960)

As one visitor noted in comments of a previous post, this title will get a BluRay release in December by Kino Lorber. The notes at the KL website for this title make a point of mentioning Fernando Rey and Gainsbourg names, which sorta tells me why it's being released by them. They are big fans of those two actors. This release is good news, and bad news as well. As I've mentioned often here at the blog, this is one of the best looking PEPLUM films released during the Golden Era. Production values were above average. It was already released recently on DVD in a pristine widescreen version and the film really pops out, so imagine a BluRay version. The bad news is the Kino Lorber are really aggressive when it comes to Youtube and anything uploaded there. I never had an issue with uploading this film on any of my channels but now this might change.

As a side note, I'd like to thank those who contributed to the blog and PEPLUM TV Youtube channel (which is still stuck in the Phantom Zone...)

The donors are:

Bree L., Stefanie S. and Austin S..

Thank you!!!
