Photo of the Day

In preparation for a big battle, Prince Maytha (Giuliano Gemma) gives a speech to his men and Hercules in HERCULES AGAINST THE SONS OF THE SUN

I finally got a widescreen copy of this film which has been eluding me for years. The print, in Italian, is from a TV broadcast and it's soft and fuzzy, not from a DVD but it's good enough. Giuliano wears the skimpiest costume in any PEPLUM film (Mark Forest's is almost as skimpy...). I like this film for more than one reason but the dance numbers are too long and I've made a version with abbreviated dance sequences and the film moves along at a better pace. The battle at the climax is one of the best.

God, I am somehow envious ;)
Where do you find these videos?
Having Hercules and the Captive Women was quite a coup too!

The TRIMARK DVD of this movie from the Adventures of Hercules set is quite good even though I have it for about 10 yrs. it's full screen but that doesn't matter. I also like this movie it's different than the usual PEP and I liked the dance sequence before sacrificing the maiden, unique.
