By the Gods!

The three Mongol brothers, played by Howard Ross, Ken Clark and Nadir Moratti, confront Hercules (Mark Forest ; Maciste in the original version) in HERCULES AGAINST THE MONGOLS (1963)

I just uploaded a Fan Dub I made at PEPLUM TV and wanted to use this screenshot as thumbnail for the video but Youtube rejected it. In fact, I can't use the thumbnail options anymore. Youtube has been acting in a very belligerent and odd way these past weeks (more on this next week). I really like this film, for many reasons, but, as this screenshot shows, the use of widescreen is exceptionally good. It feels more like a film of the 1970s than a film of the early 1960s. Director Domenico Paolella made a string of PEPLUM films in the 1960s (11 to be exact), and this one is great fun.
