By the Gods!

Hercules (Dan Vadis) is put to the test in HERCULES THE INVINCIBLE (aka The Son of Hercules in the Land of Darkness ; 1964)

This shot lasts just a few seconds in the movie. Can you image how long this shot took to set up just for a few seconds. This is the reality of movie making, even today. In the film Vadis is named Argolese, not Hercules, which is odd. If you look carefully at the set and costumes, everything was recycled from other productions, including the statues from HERCULES, SAMSON & ULYSSES (1963). A fun film but with some production issues, including the fake beard Vadis wears throughout.
