Alan Steel and Maria Grazia Spina in SAMSON & THE SLAVE QUEEN

If that sword pokes beefy Alan, will he pop like a balloon?

Seriously fun film.

I'm confused, did Samson somehow get transported from Ancient Greece to some swashbuckling European era? He's wearing pants, not a toga, and the others seem to be clad in costumes from a "Musketeers" movie.

In PEPLUM genre, the names Samson or Hercules or Goliath often do not hold their actual meaning. They're more like synonyms for or interchangeable with Strong Man or Muscleman.
