Movie Poster Mondays

Belgian poster of SAMSON & THE SEVEN MIRACLES OF THE WORLD (1961)

Like all posters from Belgium, this one is very colourful and quite good in the likeness of the actors.

I have read that the English language version is much shorter than the original release in Europe. But l have never seen any of the missing scenes. Has it ever been an uncut version released on DVD anywhere? Wayne W.

I've seen this movie a zillion times and I still can't enumerate all seven miracles! Anyone know?

Thanks for posting

Wayne, yes the US version is much shorter than the Euro version. But the bulk consists of a ten minute intro that once removed doesn't really make a big different to the story. There are a lot of short scenes throughout the movie, including the brawl in the tavern, which is abbreviated a minute or so.

Brodie, that's a good question. I'll try to enumerate them one day.

The version released in the U.S. by American-International was cut to 80 minutes from the original Italian 95 minutes. There is a Spanish DVD which is full length.
