I had the distinct good fortune to see L'ARMATA BRANCALEONE at the UCLA Film Archive many years ago, back in the Eighties. Barbara Steele is breathlessly at her best form in the Gassman/S & M fantasy sequences where the two go about lashing each other with whips. "Frustami" was a word used many times. Her costumes were sensational and it's worth a look just for this segment alone. Sexy! Steele! Don't miss an opportunity to see this: it is rare as dragon's teeth. Another feather in the cap of all the UCLA film people and its Italian Department!
