By the Gods!

Goliath (Gordon Scott) gets handled harshly by a duplicate Goliath (Giovanni Cianfriglia) in GOLIATH AND THE VAMPIRES (1961) 

This classic scene, of two He-Men battling it out, is a stand-out. I created a compilation of wrestling scenes and uploaded it to Youtube. It includes part of this scene. For years, the identity of the actor battling with Gordon Scott was a mystery. Some have said it was Steve Reeves, which is ridiculous since Reeves couldn't do these stunts after an injury. Anyway, I figured it out and posted it here at the blog back in 2012. It's pretty much Giovanni Cianfriglia. He's still uncredited for this role but it's him. 

The movie was set to get a Blu-ray release but this much anticipated edition is still M.I.A.. The website hasn't been updated since the announcement.

I hope the Blu ray and or DVD release is a great print. Something to look forward to in 2020. Wayne W.
