By the Gods!

Mario Novelli and Iloosh Khoshabe are THE INVINCIBLE BROTHERS MACISTE (1964)

Though the Monte Gelato waterfall are the most popular and seen waterfalls in PEPLUM movie, Cascate delle Marmore is a close second. Several movies have used this beautiful location for their setting, including MACISTE - STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD (1961) and APHRODITE - GODDESS OF LOVE (1958). It is a spectacular setting and it used extensively in this movie since the underground kingdom of the villains is beyond the waterfall. The story is very similar to MACISTE - STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD, so it's sort of an unofficial remake. I like it but it is quirky. I uploaded to my BY THE GODS channel. Check it out.

THANKS! Always wondered where this was, now we can add it to our list of stops in our upcoming Peplum tour of Italy and Slovenia (Monte Gelato, Tor Caldera, Cineitta, etc.)!

Your knowledge and understanding of the cycle is phenomenal
