By the Gods!

Maciste (Kirk Morris) falls through a trap door in MACISTE IN THE VALLEY OF THE THUNDERING ECHOES (1964)

Also known as HERCULES OF THE DESERT, since Maciste wasn't marketable in the US. This is a very popular cliché. I made a short compilation of this, with scenes from different movies edited together. Of course, Youtube demonetized the video. Anyway, this is one of my favourite clichés and always get a kick out of them.

When you report that YouTube has "demonetized" one of your videos what does that actually mean? Thanks.

Thanks very much.

Information is most alarming. Youtube is a subsidiary of Google, so this anti-competitive behavior is another example of Google throwing its considerable weight around recklessly.

The European Union and Members of Congress (including some Democrats) are starting to worry about the excessive power of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Amazon on fair market competition and in political contests.
