By the Gods!

Hercules (Peter Lupus) is challenged by the rulers of Babylon (Livio Lorenzon, Tullio Altamura and Helga Liné) in HERCULES AND THE TYRANTS OF BABYLON (1964)

A very entertaining PEPLUM that hits all the right notes. Directed by Domenico Paolella, who made some of my favourites genre movies. I had this one uploaded to PEPLUM TV and, of all things, a **Bollywood** company claimed copyright ownership for this old Italian production. Even though the claim is completely bogus, I removed it. They were about to make money off of my channel. No way. Yes, Youtube is insane these days.

A pretty good late Peplum. Your print was great. Same happened on my YouTube channel. I had two movies on that had been on my site for a year then suddenly l get two quick copyright strikes. Wayne W.

One of my top favorite Pepla films! And not just because Peter Lupus is the star, though that is a big reason. So many great Pepla character actors, and that scene with the women doing the "I am Spartacus" thing. It's hard for me and my family not to cry no matter how many times we've watched the movie.
