By the Gods!

Carla Marlier, Charles Band and Steve Reeves in WAR OF THE TROJANS (aka The Avenger; 1962)

Charles Band's character in the English version was named Julio. Since he's the only prominent child actor in this film, it's obvious that's him but the film credit information listed out there is confusing. Band is still alive today and wrote an tiny article in The Fantastic Fifties magazine about his experience. While making the film, he realized he hated acting.

Band's producing and directing credits are monumental, but he never returned to the Peplum genre, or the general fantasy genre for that matter. The closest he got is probably the as-yet-unfinished lost world tale "The Primevals."
