By the Gods!

Dan Vadis and his nine gladiator friends in TRIUMPH OF THE TEN GLADIATORS

I won't name all of them here. You can view the cast at this previous post : identifying the ten gladiators.

Fun film, a bit on the sloppy side, certainly in regards to the use of stock footage from other films. It's filled with brawny action. If you don't like that kind of stuff, then TRIUMPH is definitely not for you. I like them. There were many films with sets of rebels or gladiators back in the Golden Era of the genre (GLADIATORS SEVEN, SEVEN SLAVES AGAINST ROME, etc) but the Ten Gladiator films are in a league all of their own thanks mainly to the direction of Nick Nostro and the larger-than-life presence of Dan Vadis.

"Spartacus and the Ten Gladiators" and 'Triumph of the Ten Gladiators" were both directed by Nick Nostro but "The Ten Gladiators" was directed by Gianfranco Parolini.
