PEPLUM Movie Poster

British quad of THE DEVILS OF SPARTIVENTO (1963), re-titled as THE FIGHTING LEGIONS for its British release.

Not a great poster by any means but still worthy in that it shows that it had a theatrical release in English. There are a couple of interesting things about it.

- John Drew Barrymore is credited as John Barrymore jnr.
- Barrymore is the star of the movie but he's barely featured (he's on the top right)
- In the original Italian poster, the widescreen format is credited as Euroscope but here they only credited: 'SCOPE on the bottom left corner. Lol!
- Great movie!
