Retro Friday : Cinematic Confusion

(originally posted on June 3, 2011)


One of the most deceptive posters ever conceived by AIP (American International Pictures). By looking at this poster would you know that:

1 - there's Zorro in it?

2 - the story doesn't take place in Ancient Roman/Greek period?

3 - the hero even closely resembles Alan Steel?

4 - the movie doesn't have an evil Queen with a whip?

5 - there's no actual slave queen in it

The poster is so unlike the film that it's incredibly brilliant.

Deceptive poster but a fun movie nevertheless. I had a Spanish DVD of it for a long time of only so-so quality. I recently got a French double Zorro feature DVD with this and Zorro in the Court of England.
Zorro Against Maciste looks incredible. French and Italian language only but if you don't already have it, this dvd is definitely worth getting.
