By the Gods!

Ursus (Samson Burke) is put to the test in VENGEANCE OF URSUS (1961)

This scene is an almost exact copy of the classic 'feat of strength' scene from GOLIATH & THE BABRBARIANS (1959) starring Steve Reeves. I like this movie. I like it so much that it was one of the first Fan Dubs I created. The original public domain copy available in the US is in pitiful state. If you come across this movie in English and in widescreen, it's my Fan Dub. I've heard comments from viewers saying that they didn't like it but changed their minds after seeing it in its original state.

Director Luigi Capuano directed a dozen famous titles and though his name rarely comes up as an example of a good director of the genre, he certainly should be. He understood the genre.

Not trying to jump the conversation, but have you seen this?
It's a Bronze Age story of Romulus and Remus. Proto-Peplum?

Hi Tim

I wrote about it on February 3. Still haven't seen it.
