By the Gods!

Mark Forest as Hercules (Maciste in original) in HERCULES AGAINST THE BARBARIANS (1964)

"Are you the Hero?"

The contrast between Mark's exposed body and the uniformed soldiers works great in this shot. He  stands out for sure. A great way to introduce our Hero. Mark appears roughly five minutes into the movie.  I made a fabulous Fan Dub of this.

My favorite Herc intro is in MOON MEN ... early in movie, in her throne room, after Evil Queen Samara (Jany Clair) humiliates and dismisses her uncle Gladius (Nando Tamberlani), her henchman advises that the great warrior is actually in the city. She asks his name -- he says 'Hercules' -- and movie instantly cuts to an up-shot of Herc/Maciste (Alan Steel) astride a bright white horse against a blue sky, and riding up a slope away from the dazzling Mediterranean Sea
