By the Gods!

Fernando Sancho and Brad Harris (as Goliath) talk about strategies in GOLIATH AGAINST THE GIANTS (1961)

I listed Sancho's character as one of the annoying sidekicks (list here). He's actually not an annoying sidekick because he's annoying but because his character plays dumb. He's basically there to ask constant questions to Goliath, in order for Goliath to say some expository dialogue. He gets annoying pretty fast, and sorta looks dumb in the process. Aside from that (and the general plotless story) this is a fun, colourful film. The costume Brad wears in this scene is one of my favourite in a PEPLUM films. I'll make a list of my favourite costumes, male and female, for the blog one of these days  (I've been saying this for a long time now). Brad passed away recently.

I really enjoy this movie. It doesn't make much sense, but it has lots of action and a fun movie. Sancho was a terrific actor and was great in many of the Euro Westerns that he made with many Peplum Stars.
