Italian 'Sword and Sandals' Epic
on 31 May 2010
I first saw this as a 'new' teenager in 1957 and was most impressed. Starring Steve Reeves an ex-Mr Universe and in Italian dubbed in English. Steve on the strength of this film and others "became one of the highest paid and biggest box office stars in the world". I don't think he ever became Governor of California!
See Hercules fight the lion! See Hercules fight the bull of Crete! See Hercules fight the monkey men! See Hercules ripping a tree from the ground! See Hercules pulling down the palace! See Hercules outwit the Amazons! See Jason kill the dinosaur and take the Golden Fleece!
The quality of the DVD is pretty good and you also get 'Hercules Unchained' and an extra of trailers for many 'S & S' epics (many I have never heard of) featuring characters like Goliath, Samson and Ulysses played by various other 'strongmen'.
