Did I just see what I think I saw!


Did anyone else notice that at the end of the first queen's dance to shame the king, she whips off her top at the end and you get a pretty good shot of her right breast. In 1960!! Leave it to the Italians!

They also use words like eunuch and brothel, which were pretty daring then. It was the dawn of the sixties, and perhaps the envelope was starting to be pushed?

In this version, which is not based on the book of Esther, Queen Vashti is supposedly unfaithful to the King with his trecherous advisor.
