Saffo, venere di Lesbo (1960)

This is goes with a shout out to Mark Steyn for his recent excellence in lesbianism.

Possible triple-wide with a porch due to swords.

Sappho ~ Venus of Lesbos (1960) starring Tina Louise, Kerwin Mathews, Riccardo Garrone and Susy Andersen (credited as Susy Golgi).

I love this Peplum. I'm almost addicted to it. When I first saw it, I watched it once a day 4 days in a row. And I'm still hypnotized by it. The film hits all the right Peplum notes. The direction by Pietro Francisci is fun, fast and dreamy. Even if it's a romantic film, it still has lots of sword fights, big battles, ramming ships and, of course, killer lions, all set to a great swirling score.

Or you could cut to the Tina Louise highlights.
