The Warrior Empress or Sappho-Venus of Lesbos (Saffo, venere di Lesbo) provides another pretty good performance by Tina Louise
10 August 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is the second of the Italian epics Tina Louise made for director Pietro Francisci for the year 1960. While IMDb lists the above American title, the actual translated Italian one actually says "Sappho-Venus of Lesbos". And, no, there's no girl-on-girl action here though one of Sappho's friends, Actis (Susy Golgi Andersen), seems to have somewhat of a crush on her. But Tina's character is actually smitten with a wounded man named Phaon (Kerwin Mathews) who stumbles into their women-only island. But she's promised to another man named Hyperbius (Riccardo Garrone). I'll stop there and just say that I wasn't as involved in the story as the previous Louise-Francisci collaboration, L'assedio di Siracusa (Siege of Syracuse), but I still liked many of the action scenes, the romantic sequences, and the once again beautiful score by Angelo Francesco Lavagino. And, hey, there's plenty of other fine-looking women other than Ms. Louise who wear clothing that accentuate their cleavage and legs to the utmost effect! So on that note, The Warrior Empress/Sappho-Venus of Lesbos is worth a look.
