Steve Reeves prepares his men for battle in the climax of THE GIANT OF MARATHON (1959)
The ending to this film is one of the most complex ever filmed : fleet of real ships + models, big cast, practical effects, underwater sequences, stunts, gore fx, etc. The editing could have been a bit tighter but overall the ending is quite an amazing thing to see. Steve Reeves was in good form here but he did look tired in some scenes. There was a reason for this : THE GIANT OF MARATHON was one of 5 films Steve shot in a row after the success of HERCULES (1958).
