Pink wolf bites emperor
The brave soldier Valerius (Richard Harrison) is unhappy with his emperor Domitian (Piero Lulli) who behaves like a tyrant and has 5 people executed before breakfast on a normal day. His Egyptian wife Artamne (Moira Orfei) supports not only all the evil ideas he has, but even adds a few of her own. Valerius secretly meets Nerva (Giuliano Gemma), and they start to make plans to overthrow the tyrant.

A really good, action-packed, typical genre movie - the only thing you could accuse it of is being a little bit "too typical", i.e. everything goes by the book of unwritten rules. Which is on the other hand guaranteed to please if you like this kind of stuff. Use of colors was a bit overdone here: Artamne wears different wigs - blue, green, any imaginable hair color as long as it looks false - whereas the costume of the Red Wolf makes him look like a pink wolf. Nice to see young Gemma in one of his early roles before he became a western star.
