By the Gods!

The Three Stooges are galley slaves in THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES

This scene is one of the better ones in this PEPLUM comedy. The film was shot in Black & White and regular aspect ratio, which was rare back in the day of Cinemascope productions. Columbia Pictures didn't invest that much in it. Even so, the film sorta looks fine sans color. They also used footage from SAPPHO - THE VENUS OF LESBOS, mainly during this scene with exterior shots of the boat. The slave driver displayed by John Cliff. And that's Quinn K. Redeker next to Larry.

Exelente, extraordinary film. I saw him when I was a little kid and I never forgot, especially the scene where Schuyler Davis rips his shirt as he develops his musculature while rowing (Conan's film copied it).
