By the Gods!

Theseus (Bob Mathias) faces the minotaur in THE MINOTAUR

Today, the special effects for the minotaur looks sorta corny but for 1960, this was pretty good. But the design itself looks more like a horned gorilla than man-bull. I like this film. It's pretty solid : good cast, good production, good score, etc. A faithful version of the story of Theseus versus the minotaur has yet to be done though.

It's not a very bull-like monster; no. It's still an intersting creature, though. From what I could tell from production stills it's a huge suit. The head, next to the actors, looks enormous.
