A scene from HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD (1961) starring Reg Park as Hercules, and Christopher Lee as Lico, sitting on his throne.

These scenes used multiple special effects techniques to achieve the big set look. The production was apparently limited to a few columns and they had to be superimposed in a composite to give the impression that there were more than the few they had. The film was directed by Mario Bava, who excelled in visual effects and this entire striking scene is almost all special effects.

For me, the two most beautiful shots of the Italian peplums.
I have two screens for my computer. Each shots are their background pictures.
