Abbe Lane and Gordon Mitchell are a tempestuous couple in CAESAR AGAINST THE PIRATES (1962)

Directed by Sergio Grieco, this brawny movie has one of the best performances by Gordon Mitchell. IMO, it even surpasses the one in FURY OF ACHILLES (1962). I mean, Mitchell is usually always angry or ultra macho but this role, director Grieco let him loose. A lot of people don't like this movie but I do. It's very entertaining. Abbe Lane makes a good actress for PEPLUM roles. She only starred in a handful of them. And yes, Julius Caesar was taken hostage by pirates. Of course, this movie is just a pulpy dramatization of that slice of history. I have multiple copies of this, including a TV broadcast from the UK. This screenshot was taken from a recent copy from a TV broadcast in Italy. Not quite HD. Also known as JULIUS CAESAR AGAINST THE PIRATES.
