By the Gods!

Samson Burke, Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia in the comedy SATIRICOSISSIMO (1970)

I finally got a copy with subtitles in which I'll be able to understand the rapid fire Italian dialogue. Franco and Ciccio were a popular comedy duo in Italy. They began in 1954 and lasted up to 1992 after Franco's death. This is not their first PEPLUM movie. They also starred in MACISTE VS HERCULES IN THE VALE OF WOE (1961). From this screenshot, Samson is either super tall or the comedians were super short.
