By the Gods!

Steve Reeves, as Morgan, inspects the booty in MORGAN THE PIRATE

Steve made this great swashbuckler right after THE GIANT OF MARATHON, in which he looked exhausted. After the success of HERCULES, Steve worked nonstop and by the time he made MARATHON he looked gaunt. But in this film he regained his healthy looked and actually appeared younger than some of his previous films. This was his only production in 1960. Steve was always frustrated that people only remembered him as Hercules when he played so many other roles.

This is one of Steve's very best films. It has very little to do with the real Morgan, but of course one should not try to learn history from movies.
