Photo of the Day

Maciste (Poseidon in the US version) is about to get roughed up by a gorilla in MACISTE - GLADIATOR OF SPARTA (aka Terror of Rome vs Son of Hercules)

Mark is ultra buff in this movie and the producers/director made sure to highlight his excellent physical condition for audiences to see. Mark is the film's special effect. Arf. This scene is a polarising one: you either like it or laugh at it. I like it, of course, even if the gorilla is not very convincing but the fighting is actually pretty good.

I agree that Mark looked his best in this film. I prefer him at his lighter weight as opposed to his beefier look in Goliath and the Dragon. I wish he and Steve Reeves could have done a peplum together. I often imagine how Duel of the Titans would have looked with those two since they facially resemble each other. Gordon did a good job but Mark's physique paired with Reeves' would have been a peplum feast to behold!

That would have been a great team for sure
