By the Gods!

Luciano Marin, Steve Reeves, and Giulia Rubini in a photo from a lobby card set of GOLIATH AND THE BARBARIANS (1959)

You know you're a PEPLUM fan when you see an image (the one above) and think 'that's not in the movie'. And it isn't as seen in the screenshot below. It's publicity shot (and a nice one at that with Steve looking amazing!), one that recalls the scene from HERCULES (1958) with Herc cooking a big rump at the beginning.

The fact that this movie is still not available in HD is a crime against humanity. Seriously, the print from the US DVD was terrible. And prints from other countries weren't that much better. So, where's the stunning, super clear HD broadcast or Blu-ray?
