Genevieve Grad and Ettore Manni are lovers in CONQUEST OF THE NORMANS (1962) 

I like this movie. It uses a lot of battle scenes from THE LAST OF THE VIKINGS (1961) but it doesn't bother me since the movie is well made. In this scene, Grad's character is about to discover her past via flashbacks told by her father played by Philippe Hersent (not pictured). It's one of my favourite flashbacks in PEPLUM movies, with the one in HERCULES (1958) being my favourite. I think the flashback is well handled and adds a lot. Flashbacks are a hit or miss with often being a miss. But when well made they can had so much to a story. I did a Fan Dub of this movie. Also known as ATTACK OF THE NORMANS (US), INVASION OF THE NORMANS (UK) or simply THE NORMANS.
