Taina Elg and other women dance to summon/in honour of Dionysus in THE BACCHANTES (1961)

I like this film even though most PEPLUM fans who watch these movies for muscular action aren't much fans of it. I like it because it's one of the few PEPLUM movies which shows the relationship between Greek gods and mortals. Taina is quite good, in the acting department and the dancing one as well. I like this so much I was the first to make a Fan Dub of it from a very poor copy with the English audio (that was out of sync with the film) and re-edited with a nice print from Europe. The English audio is everywhere now but it all came from that one source. Is the movie perfect? No. It does have quite a few odd eccentricities but they don't bother me since the whole of the movie is so good. I hope to see it one day in HD and in English.

There's a nice clean English dub on youtube of this movie. There's also a very nice Italian HD version.

The English copy is my Fan Dub.
