HD Alert!

'Hercules' (Gordon Scott) kills the prison guard (Nello Pazzafini) during a combat scene in HERCULES AGAINST MOLOCH (1963)

2 months ago I posted about finding a clip of this movie on Youtube in HD (1280p). So I was looking for the full movie and I found one copy. The clip on Youtube is in Italian but the full movie I found is in French. Regardless, I finally got it. I like this movie even though it has some liabilities, including the use of scenes from other movies, mainly THE BACCHANTES (1961) and THE TROJAN HORSE (1961). All three movies were directed by Giorgio Ferroni. This use of scenes from other movies is a problem with these HD transfers: the original new scenes look great in HD but the re-used clips look even worse than usual in HD. Doing HD transfers of 2nd or 3rd generation clips is awful, and there's a lot of these re-used scenes in this movie. If you're wondering, those legs belong to Jany Clair. Scott's real name is not Hercules but Glaucus. He assumes the name of Hercules to hide his identity. That's why I put Hercules in brackets.
