Fabrizio Mioni, R.I.P.

Italian actor Fabrizio Mioni died on June 8 at the age of 89. He's best known as Jason in HERCULES (1958). He only appeared in a couple of PEPLUM movies. He moved to Hollywood and mainly starred in TV shows. His role in HERCULES was integral to the storyline and he figures prominently throughout the classic film. R.I.P..


Fabrizio had a prominent role in this most excellent movie directed by Pietro Francisci. He and Rik Battaglia (below) really played off of each other beautifully. 


Fabrizio starred along with Steve Reeves in HERCULES (1958), also directed by Pietro Francisci. The entire storyline centers around Jason and his ascent to the crown of Jolco. He is very good in it.

Jason (Mioni) is prophesied to lose a single sandal and he does in this memorable scene.

Jason (Mioni) and the crew of the Argonauts finally have the Golden Fleece.
