Lobby Cards Set: THE MINOTAUR

U.S. Lobby cards set for THE MINOTAUR (1960). Excellent set. There's a card with the actual Minotaur in it which must fetch more money than the other cards. Funny enough, card #3 is a scene that's not in the movie, in any different versions I have. I have to make a compilation of such 'missing' scenes seen in lobby cards sets of different movies.

In my view THE MINOTAUR is a really first rate Peplum.

The quality of Peplum flicks varies widely, from pretty awful to really first class ones.

The Minotaur has everything that makes a Peplum interesting, in my view. All the tropes are energetically ladled on: Fights, escapes, torture, huge sets, dance numbers, an evil queen, twin sisters, and a monster that is as ambitious as the times and the budget would allow. It really should have a more prominent position in the Peplum genre, and actually in the fantasy genre in general.
