By the Gods!

Dan Vadis, as Hercules, leaves a village in HERCULES THE INVINCIBLE (1964; Ercole l'invincibile; aka Sons of Hercules in the Land of Darkness)

Nice matte painting work. The scene lasts just a few seconds so that's a lot of work for a brief moment. This movie is odd in that its production values are pretty solid (case in point) and yet the editing and the overall direction is sorta lackadaisical and scattershot. Fun movie but uneven in this regards.

A good establishing shot will linger in the minds of the audience, and help sell that the story takes place in a certain location. This shot here is a very good establishing shot and certainly does its job.
