By the Gods!

Mary Read (Lisa Gastoni) and Ivan (Germano Longo, in background) in QUEEN OF THE SEAS (1961)

Another well mounted adventure directed by Umberto Lenzi. Quite elaborate. Today, few films would look so eye-filling. This print is close to HD but it needed some color correction. The movie was release on DVD by SNC of France and the colors are more correct. Oddly enough, this one is more film-like than the SNC one. Lisa Gastoni, an excellent actress, carries herself well. Germano Longo is solid as usual. The Italian title tanslates as THE ADVENTURES OF MARY READ. Personally, I prefer that title over the generic one.
