Fariza (Wandisa Guida) has a special gift of flowers for Maciste (Reg Park) in MACISTE IN KING SOLOMON'S MINES (1964)

One of the better Reg Park PEPLUM movies. As good as it is you sorta can see how bored Reg was of acting. He's phoning it in. He only comes alive during the many Feats of Strengths. On the other hand, Wandisa is having the time of her life playing a villainess. The flowers will knock him out. I should do a list of all the ways Heroes are rendered weak. This one is original. I definitely need a HD version of this. It is colourful and fun, and filled with over-the-top Feats of Strengths.

Maciste gets the special wreath treatment from Fazira here in a previous PeplumTV post:

This one also made it to HD recently. I think it's in Italian. There's a (youtube HD) version on youtube under it's French title, with Italian subs. I've also seen it on a French streaming service advertised as HD.

I checked the copy and it looks good but I believe it's just an up conversion from the SNC DVD.

I'll check it out further. Thanks.
