Most SURPRISING to see Broderick Crawford in a Peplum flick.

His breakthrough role was as Willie Stark in ALL THE KING'S MEN (1949), for which he won an OSCAR.

Crawford is probably remembered today by old geezers such as myself as the star in the TV series HIGHWAY PATROL (1955-1959).

The Euro version is so much better than the U.S. "Dragon" version that there is no comparison. So much was cut from the original for U.S./North American consumption, for example, Herc's descent, and time within Hades, is much longer than in the N.A. version.

Broderick is BRUTAL in his portrayal and Wandisa Guida is exquisite in this film, as is Elenora Ruffo as Herc's long-suffering wife.

Great Flick!
