HD Alert!

Gia Sandri and Giovanni Cianfriglia, as Anteus pretending to be Hercules, in HERCULES THE AVENGER (1965)

As I reported last week, in Musings! and at BY THE GODS!, there's a new batch of PEPLUM titles available in HD. For now, most of the videos I've seen are short clips, not the full movies. Anyway, one title in particular, HERCULES THE AVENGER, stood out from the pack. The movie now looks amazing. No more second or third generation print. Clear image with beautiful colours. Suddenly, this movie is catapulted to the top of the genre. I watched it many times but I was always dismayed by the look of it. No more. It's a revelation. I can't wait to see the entire movie, including the classic fight between Reg Park and Giovanni Cianfriglia.

Hercules (Reg Park) finds his son (Luigi Barbini) in HERCULES THE AVENGER.
