Queen Samara (Jany Clair) eavesdrops on a conversation via the golden statue in HERCULES AGAINST THE MOON MEN (1964)

Queen Samara is one of my favourite villainesses of the PEPLUM genre. She epitomizes everything fun about the genre's Evil Queens. Totally ruthless to the point of being campy but not in an overtly comical way. She's determined to do evil no matter what. Her performance is pitch perfect. Jany looks like a character straight from a Japanese Anime. Where is she? Another actor/actress of the genre that disappeared from the face of the earth.
