Photo of the Day

Ursus (Yann Larvor) tries to strangle Maciste (Howard Ross) with Samson (Nadir Moretti) looking on from SAMSON & THE MIGHTY CHALLENGE (1964)

Both Howard Ross and Nadir Moretti appeared in other PEPLUM films before and after this, including HERCULES AGAINST THE MONGOLS in 1963. As for French bodybuilder Yann, his career was over after this. This photo is missing Hercules (Alan Steel) but Hercules wasn't involved in the brawl at the tavern.

Yes, but this is a composite type photo, one scene imposed upon another. In the actual fight the two guys are upstairs and there are walls surrounding the table.
