Hercules (Alan Steel) is informed by Agar (Anna Maria Polani) of some bad news in HERCULES AGAINST THE MOON MEN (1964)

Most PEPLUM movies love big crowd scenes. You know, 'A CAST OF THOUSANDS...". But not this movie. It's oddly unpopulated. It would seem that the reign of terror from the evil Moon Men have scared the populace into hiding but still, some scenes decidedly look un-PEPLUM, such as this one. I love this colourful movie but this aspect (the only one actually) always made me go hmm.... Some will say the movie is a low budget production but there are very low budgeted PEPLUM movies and they still could afford a crowd. I think it was just to create some atmosphere but it's highly unusual for a PEPLUM movie.
