By the Gods!

Hercules (Steve Reeves) and Iole (Sylva Koscina) greet each other after he rescued her in HERCULES (1958)

The film that started the PEPLUM explosion, and the scene in which the two characters (and actors) would be forever bound. The entire beach scene is great and beautifully shot.

Sylva was perfect in the Steve Reeves "Hercules" movies.

Additionally she was a versatile actress with success outside the Peplum genre.

Sadly she died in Rome at only age 61 from breast cancer.
