By the Gods!

Kirk Morris and cast in the ending to HERCULES, SAMSON & ULYSSES (1963; 1965 in the US)

Great ending to the movie but also sad ending to the PEPLUM genre as by the time this movie was released in the US, the genre was just about dead. Directed by Pietro Francisci, who directed the original HERCULES (1958), this is a swan song of sorts to his career, the PEPLUM genre and the PEPLUM explosion his movie created.
