Marilù Tolo and Mark Forest in THE MAGNIFICENT GLADIATOR (1964) 

I think there's a scene like this in all of Mark Forest's PEPLUM movies. I should do a compilation. Mark died recently but Marilù is still with us. She was 19 when she starred in this movie. Mark's character is spared from being killed by Roman soldiers because he could make a 'magnificent gladiator.' This theme is quite common in PEPLUM movies. Even though we see Mark in a couple of scenes in the arena, we only briefly see him fighting as a gladiator. The action, and there's a lot of it, takes place outside the arena. A Twin Production with MACISTE - GLADIATOR OF SPARTA.
