By the Gods!

Hercules (Mark Forest) and Princess Hamara (Anna-Maria Pace) fall in love in HERCULES AGAINST THE SONS OF THE SUN (1964)

Not the most believable love story in a PEPLUM movie. The two don't have any chemistry whatsoever. Aside from this and an overlong dance number, I really like this oddball PEPLUM, with Hercules ending up on the other side of the Atlantic and befriending the Incas. The battle at the end is one of the best. Mark wears a very short tunic, which he keeps adjusting throughout the movie, providing some unintentional chuckles here and there. The one problem with this title : there's never been a great DVD release or TV broadcast of it. Still waiting for a spectacular print.

Pretty bizarre location for a Peplum flick. Not very successful film in my view.

Not the greatest peplum but is quite fun
