Mark Forest as Maciste in SON OF SAMSON (1960)

That's Vira Silenti in the yellow dress. This scene is cut from the US edition. Why? I dunno. The original Italian title translates into English as MACISTE IN THE VALLEY OF THE KINGS. This was Mark's second film. When Mark started he was big but by the time he made HERCULES AGAINST THE BARBARIANS, his musculature had diminished considerably and he looked fit but not humongous. This entertaining PEPLUM is blocked on Youtube. I'm trying to think of alternative ways to upload this. I'm thinking of Dailymotion but no one goes to that site. Dailymotion also limits the length of uploads to one hour. So I would have to split the film in two. It might be better than nothing.
