By the Gods!

Maciste (Mark Forest) tries to turn the big thingamajig all by himself in MACISTE AGAINST THE MOLE MEN (aka Mole Men vs the Son of Hercules)

I wonder what happened to this big prop. No CGI here. It's all on screen. This is one of Mark's best films even if his toga is not very flattering.

And finally, a test which required him to strain totally and even though he was the strongest man on Earth he still couldn't get it to go very fast. I wonder what would have happened if the queen had had all of the other slaves retired to their cells and had only TSOH push the wheel, like for hours on end. He was exhausted by the plate test because he couldn't even stand when the holding cage was allowed to release him. Two or three hours on this wheel would have had him on his knees, at least. As the Queen said, "He is but a man, not a God. He has a limit!" I should have liked to see him humbled a little, before he destroys the entire complex, with a little help from his friend.
