Gordon Scott, as Coriolanus, in CORIOLANUS: HERO WITHOUT A COUNTRY (1964)

Alberto Lupo and Philippe Hersent are on the left. Good movie, probably the most serious of Scott's PEPLUM production. It's not based on Shakespeare's play even though there are similarities. Some find the movie boring, because it's serious but I like it. It's directed by a solid director, Giorgio Ferroni, who directed some of the best PEPLUM movies. Dismissing it because it doesn't have enough action scenes (there are actions scenes but not as many as usual). The movie does employ re-used scenes, from THE TROJAN HORSE or HANNIBAL but the scenes blend better than most typical PEPLUM flick. Music is also from HANNIBAL
