Rossana Podesta and Guy Madison in SLAVE OF ROME (1961) 

Very good PEPLUM that's overlooked. It's solid from beginning to end. It's one of those movies where it takes place entirely outside. There are a few interior scenes. The movie was directed by Sergio Grieco, so I know it's going to be entertaining. The word SLAVE has become a politically incorrect word to use. It seems that might explain a few reasons why the blog was shadow banned last year for two months. It's still sorta shadow banned but the views have come back to normal (3k per day). But websites with such words are seen as problematic and therefore Google makes them invisible. What strange times we live in.

On still being Google shadow banned:
I wanted to know about 'Schermiscope' and when I google it, your blog comes up second where you mention it in your 2011 featured film posting.

Yes. Old stuff from my blog shows up but not recent stuff.

Search SLAVE OF ROME. Nearly nothing from my blog shows up. And I've written about it many times. I had to scroll down a long time before seeing the film image of the movie from my blog.

It's insane.

At least the views are good.

Strange times indeed. You can no longer say "Master Bedroom" or "Plantation Shutters." It borders on the ridiculous.
