HD Alert!

Andromeda (Anna Ranalli) and Perseus (Richard Harrison) have an emotional discussion in PERSEUS THE INVINCIBLE (1963)

I revisited this HD print in my collection, originally taken from a streaming service in Spain, and I forgot how stunning many parts of it are. The crisp cinematography makes it look like it was shot yesterday. This is the Spanish version of the film, EL VALLE DE LOS HOMBRES DE PIEDRA. It differs from the Italian version in many ways, including additional effects, music and scenes not seen in the Italian version. Anyway, the details in some scenes, like the one below with the monster coming out of the lake, is stunning. This is definitely Richard Harrison's best PEPLUM.

Hey, Kino Lorber, get this print now. And include both the Italian and Spanish versions with English audio as well.

The Kino Peplum releases appear to have dried up. What a pity.

Wow, those screen grabs look really nice. Hopefully, Kino Lorber will release some new peplum titles soon.
