30 Greatest Moments of PEPLUM Cinema: #5 - 'Feat of Strength' from HERCULES AGAINST THE MOON MEN



Counting down the top five and this scene stands at #5 on the list.

One of the best 'feat of strength' from any PEPLUM film. It's a stand-out PEPLUM moment which also includes the 'Wheel of Weaklings' cliché.

With Alan Steel, Anna Maria Polani and Jany Clair. Directed by Giacomo Gentilomo.

I was watching this movie on Friday and thought to myself that maybe this scene would make the top 5. Thanks, I guessed right!! Fun movie especially in widescreen. I think I know which scene is going to be #1, but I will wait till Friday. All your choices to date are excellent.

#1 is not Steve Reeves even though he has two in the top 5.

OK. It will be interesting to see what the criterion is.

I think I know what will be number one: a scene that will last a little longer than 8 minutes, if I'm right. For me, though, right now, this scene would have been number two. It's one of those where the hero is just about to give up, and would have lost for the first time in his life, had the rope not broken, or had been just a bit thicker.
