By the Gods!

 An army is about to do some damage from THE TARTARS

A fairly standard scene in a PEPLUM film, always followed by shot showing a swarm of arrows flying in all directions.

Behind-the-Scenes


Large scale model for the ending in SAMSON & DELILAH. Cool stuff.

By the Gods!

Hercules (Alan Steel) shows no regards to furniture in HERCULES AGAINST ROME

One of my faves. Really fun film even if the 'Hercules' angle is a bit facile.


Movie Poster Mondays

Spanish poster for COLOSSUS OF ROME (aka Hero of Rome)

I have this poster in my collection. It's one of my favorites. Really brutal.

By the Gods!

Steve Reeves is Karim in THE THIEF OF BAGHDAD

Steve was supposed to star in WONDERS OF ALADDIN, a film produced by the same film company as this one, LUX. They decided to opt for Donald O'Connor instead. How does one go from Steve Reeves to Donald? This film is way better than WONDERS OF ALADDIN. Steve dodged a bullet there.

Back next week!

PEPLUM GIF animation : THE LOVES OF HERCULES


Scene from THE LOVES OF HERCULES starring Jayne Mansfield and Mickey Hargitay. Who needs 3D?

Video of the Week : HERCULES VS THE MONGOLS - Fight for Bianca


I uploaded this fight / wrestling scene from HERCULES AGAINST THE MONGOLS starring Mark Forest, Renato Rossini (Howard Ross), Ken Clark, Nadir Moretti and José Greci.

Mark is buff but Renato Rossini is the most impressive here.


In Bed with Steve Reeves



Cheeky compilation of clips taken from Steve Reeves films with him lying down, sleeping or wanting to sleep or getting nursed back to health.
