Original US lobby cards set of SLAVES OF BABYLON (1953) starring Richard Conte and Linda Christian. This set is actually very good. Has almost all the best scenes from the movie. The problem is not many people have seen this so it's sorta meaningless to them but since I like this movie, it's a solid set. This includes a photo of Julie Newmar's excellent dance seen.

SLAVES OF BABYLON is not very good in my view. The actor who plays Daniel seems to be almost comatose, and the plot is too complex. I wonder how closely it follows the book in the Bible without Hollywood add-ons.

Introducing Biblical themes into Peplum movies tends to slow down their pacing and make they seem syrupy to modern audiences.

Our culture has move a long way from the religiosity of the early 1950s, when the middle class was worried that their new suburban homes could be nuked by the evil godless commies.

By far he best thing in SLAVES OF BABYLON is the very well choreographed sexy dance by Julie Newmar.

Julie is still alive at age 86 and living in LA.
