Cleopatra Bis

Last week on June 12th 2013 it was exactly 50 years ago that the movie "Cleopatra" with Elizabeth Taylor got its première in America after a long and very hazardous production schedule in London (Britain) and  Rome (Italy) and above all the movie went way over budget almost bankrupting 20th Century Fox! But the movie was an absolute success in America and the rest of the world for years to come on every level of  life like fashion or entertainment igniting a slew of peplum movies during the rest of the 60's and early 70's, all being produced in Cincecitta in Italy . Even Marisa Mell could not escape the tsunami that this movie caused.  Hence this photoshoot with fashion photographer Bert Stern completely dressed like an Egyptian princess! As always Marisa Mell is just absolutely beautiful but what makes this shoot special is that it also gives us a  glimpse behind the scene of the photoshoot.
