Pythias (Don Burnett) looks over to Damon (Guy Williams) and Adriana (Liana Orfei) in DAMON AND PYTHIAS (1962)

This movie lingered in the public domain territory for years, with awful washed-out prints. But it was recently released in a beautiful DVD print from Warner Archive...which makes me wonder, is it still in the public domain? This movie is a perfect amalgamation of Italian and US crews making a PEPLUM. The production is solid with some good performances. It sometimes feel like a TV movie but an above average one. Also known as THE TYRANT OF SYRACUSE. Do you like it?
