By the Gods!

A movie set from SOLOMOM & SHEBA (1959)

One of the my favourite aspects of PEPLUM films are their movie sets. I really like this set. It looks more authentic than most even if the SOLOMON & SHEBA wasn't anything close to being authentic. Today, it would probably be CGI. This set is the grand courtyard seen when Sheba (Gina Lollobrigida) is introduced to Solomon (Yul Brynner). They don't just make them like this anymore.

Lollabrigida is super beautiful in that film, one of its few virtues.

I agree fully that CGI is never as good as physical objects, especially buildings.

Two of the greats -- Brynner and Lollabrigida.
