By the Gods!

Pino Mattei, Susan Paget and Brad Harris in 79 AD: THE DESTRUCTION OF HERCULANEUM (1962)

One of the oddest things about this very good movie is the casting. This was Susan Paget's first movie, and she only made two movies and yet she's billed above everyone else, including Brad Harris. This odd casting hierarchy includes original movies posters. And yet very little is known about her. She's a complete mystery. Her name was most likely a pseudonym, not her real name, making it more difficult to figure out who she is (did she have other titles under her real name?). What's even more odd is that her role in this movie is not even a major one. It's a supporting role.

Off topic question: Does anybody out there have the Franch Blu-ray of Messlina with Belinda Lee and, if so, are there forced French subtitles when you listen to the English language track?

The subs are removable when watching the film in English.
