By the Gods!

Maciste (Reg Park) talks to a tribal chief in MACISTE IN KING SOLOMON'S MINES (1964)

There's a direct connection between PEPLUM movies and Jungle Adventures or Tarzan, or Tarzan-like, movies. For a lot of people, PEPLUM just means one thing but many genres and sub-genres fall under the PEPLUM umbrella. And Jungle Adventures are one of them. And this movie is a perfect example of this. I think they should be included as sub-genre. I'll write about this.

There's nudity in this scene, with the women being topless. Would this be considered an example of Wardrobe Malfunction? Or it's different when nudity is from tribal women?

This movie needs to be released on Blu-ray or broadcast in HD somewhere. It's a great looking PEPLUM and would look amazing in HD.

The topless African woman could meet with disapproval from feminists.

They are increasingly hostile to art depicting female beauty, which has been a major theme of art globally for thousands of years.

It's a pity, Reg Park never played Tarzen.
