By the Gods!

Paul Stevens, Gordon Scott and Mart Hulswit in HERCULES & THE PRINCESS OF TROY

The only time Scott actually played Hercules (not someone named Hercules or pretending to be Hercules asin HERCULES AGAINST MOLOCH). This was a TV pilot that didn't get picked. it would have been amazing if it had been but by the time this was made people started getting bored with the PEPLUM genre. Production values are excellent but the story is not that compelling so it's not surprising it wasn't picked up. For me, a weekly series like this would be amazing.

The bug-eyed sea monster is one of the better one in the Peplum genre.

The monster in this TV pilot reminds me of the monsters in the movie THE MONSTER THAT CHALLENGED THE WORLD made in 1957. They are very similar. The movie itself was one of the better Sci-Fi movies of the Cold War Era.
