Gordon Scott in HERO OF BABYLON

The 'surrounded by spears' is a very popular cliché in musclemen pictures : there are few ways to stop a very strong man and this is one quick and easy way that works. One of Scott's better films.

Gordon Scott was a close second to Steve Reeves in terms of being the best male Peplum star.

But nothing works as well as the DREADED NET. Maciste can be flinging men to and fro, but he wilts once the net is dropped on him. In only one S&S film does Maciste escape the Dreaded Net, and that's URSUS IN THE VALLEY OF THE LIONS below the ubiquitous Cascate di Monte Gelato
