 Hiram Keller, Gordon Mitchell and Martin Potter in FELLINI - SATYRICON (1969)

There's a short list of PEPLUM stars that appeared in a Fellini movie. Here's one: Gordon Mitchell. The scene is brief and the way it's filmed makes it impossible to take screenshots so this photo will do. Mitchell, along with Samson Burke, appeared in small roles in this humongous movie. Mitchell looks positively tiny next to Keller and Porter, who weren't bodybuilders like Mitchell. It's so odd to see this. Anyway, many people do not like the  movie but I like it. It's to PEPLUM movies what 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY was to science-fiction films.
