By the Gods!

Mark Damon tries to survive in THE 100 HORSEMEN (1964)

A quasi experimental film directed by Vittorio Cottofavi, who also directed HERCULES AND THE CAPTIVE WOMEN and GOLIATH & THE DRAGON. I'm certain most of the film was ad-libbed. It doesn't feel solid even though the story needed some structure. It's very 'off the cuff.' Like other Cottofavi films, it's a mix of comedy and violence that might be off putting to some viewers. Mark Damon made several films in Europe before moving back to the US and produce Hollywood films like MONSTER and WILD ORCHID!
