By the Gods!

Cleopatra (Pascale Petit) steps out of a bath in A QUEEN FOR CAESAR (1962)

Though there are bathing scenes with men cleaning themselves, including a famous one in QUO VADIS (1951), a PEPLUM film without a 'bathing beauty' scene is 'de rigueur' in a PEPLUM movie. This one is simple enough but Pascale's beauty makes it memorable.

 This bathtub or tiny pool was used in many other PEPLUM movies, including HERCULES THE INVINCIBLE (1964) and URSUS IN THE LAND OF FIRE (1963). Recycling was also 'de rigueur' in PEPLUM productions.

Very nice indeed. Love the fact that Pascal's towel is semi-transparent.

Recommend lots more Peplum female bathing scenes.
