By the Gods!

Livio Lorenzon, Mark Forest, Giuliano Gemma and Mimmo Palmara in GOLIATH AND THE SINS OF BABYLON (1963)

This week I profiled PEPLUM films set in Babylon. Most of them, like this film, have very little to do with actual Babylonian history and culture. People associate 'Babylon' with depravity and evil pagans. Aside from some costumes which look Babylonian, this action movie is pretty much Babylonian in title only. Fun film nonetheless.

Livio Lorenzon was one of the best actors in the Peplum genre in my opinion.
