By the Gods!

Kirk Morris as Maciste in MACISTE IN HELL (1962). Directed by Riccardo Freda.

Yesterday I mentioned a book on Riccardo Freda and well, today I have to say that I'm already disappointed by it. I won't give a full critique of it here but suffice it to say, it's not what I expected it to be. There is some excellent information in it, stuff you wouldn't find anywhere else but the writing style, although excellent, is not what I thought this book would be. It reads more like a novel. God, this book was expensive. Oh well...

A very impressive scene. I wonder how it was done? Forced perspective. "Hey Riccardo, I want you to push the burning iron door open. Don't worry about the fire, we got water buckets."
