By the Gods!

Zbyszko of Bogdaniec (Mieczyslaw Kalenik) is about to be executed in BLACK CROSS (1960; aka Knights of the Teutonic Order)

A lavish Polish movie with knights, damsels in distress and the usual stuff. It's quite elaborate and looks good even if some of the costumes are simplistic. Like a combination of THE MIGHTY CRUSADERS (1958) and WHOM THE GODS WISH TO DESTROY (1966). There are clips on Youtube. Like many PEPLUM movies at the time, it was shot in Eastmancolor and Dyaliscope!
