Mara Lane watches gladiators in action in 79 AD: THE DESTRUCTION OF HERCULANEUM (1962)

The first time I watched this movie and saw this scene I went 'Wow!" It's one of the few times that I reacted vocally when watching a PEPLUM movie. I love the genre and this scene is right up there as one of my favourites. The story is ok. It's nothing remarkable. What's remarkable is the production and cast. In my opinion, it's one of the best looking PEPLUM movie ever made. It's like PEPLUM nirvana. Mara Lane only appeared in a few movies before quitting acting. It's a shame. I liked her. This screen shot if from a pseudo HD copy which is very beautiful. Unfortunately, it has digital artifacts throughout and it's pretty much unwatchable.
