By the Gods!

Sylva Koscina as Clio in SIEGE OF SYRACUSE (1960)

Sylva's role in this excellent movie was small. I wished it had been bigger. In fact, I wished she had the leading role instead of Tina Louise. Nothing against Tina, and she does a good job for what was a complicated role (multiple identities, memory lost, etc) but I feel Sylva would have done a greater job, would have been more affecting. It would have been memorable. For now, her role amounts to a little more than a footnote which is a shame. She deserved better.

Sylvia is one of my favorite Peplu9m actresses. She was certainly cute with her pixie hairstyle.
