By the Gods!

Ramses (Armando Francioli) taunts the helpless Queen Akis (Linda Cristal) in THE PHARAOHS' WOMAN

Linda Cristal died on June 27 at the age of 89. She starred in 3 PEPLUM movies: LEGIONS OF THE NILES (1959), THE PHARAOHS' WOMAN (1960), SLAVE GIRLS OF SHEBA (1963). She worked sporadically in movies after the latter but worked extensively for TV. Though she only appeared in 3 PEPLUM titles, one of them, THE PHARAOHS' WOMAN, is a favorite of mine. R.I.P..
