Trivia

Apart from one Asian catalogue, there is no evidence that this film was ever released as Bondage Gladiator Sexy. Indeed, the story line contains no bondage and no gladiators. Medallion Pictures released it in the US in 1963 as The Bacchantes, and whilst there was no British theatrical release, it did receive a British television premiere on 3 January 1992 (again as The Bacchantes) as part of Channel 4's Sword and Sandal season.

Beautifully filmed historical tale.
10 December 2003 | by copycat1025See all my reviews

I recently got the chance to sit down and watch this for the first time, and am very impressed with how professional this film is. Giorgio Ferroni has fully tapped his cinematic talents, creating a movie which is visually every bit as stunning as Francisci's "Hercules." The tale itself is based on an ancient Greek play, but that is incidental. This one contains some very nicely decorated sets, an excellent score, budget costumes, and good acting. Pierre Brice is at his best as Dionysus, who comes to Thebes only to be short-shrifted by King Penteus (Alberto Lupo), who forbids his worship in that city. I've seen several other of Ferroni's films, but this one stands in my mind as one of the best. Nerio Bernardi is also in place as the high priest, while Alessandra Panaro and Taina Elg head the female cast. All in all, this is a wonderful film, and one that should be seen by every fan of the genre.
