"Fashion parade" from The Pirate and the Slave Girl (1959)



This one stars our old friend Chelo Alonso as an Arab princess, Miriam. As far as I can tell, this is from the scene in which Miriam and her beautiful female entourage are about to be sold into slavery at the Selim's palace after being captured by the pirate Dragon Drakut and the unscrupulous Captain Diego. Methinks a few historical liberties have been taken here, as I cannot imagine that an actual slave market was in any way this elegantly surreal.

  1. I'd be worried about setting my cloak on fire on one of those torches.

  2. I'm not that smokin' hot, so I'm a bit less of a health and safety issue. Ba-dom-DISH.
