By the Gods!

Mimmo Palmara and Alan Steel fight (for amusement) in HERCULES AND THE MASKED RIDER (1963)

This is a fun fight scene which ends in a draw (it was timed to end with an hourglass). Mimmo was fit but you can clearly see Alan had the advantage in terms of physical strength. The two become friends and they never fight again in the rest of the movie. It's a shame because the fight was good. I really like this movie. It's one of those cross-genre movies most people don't get about the PEPLUM genre. I got a nice copy, thanks to my great source in Europe. It's not in full HD and the image is a bit too dark and red (it needs colour correction) but it's the best copy out there yet.

Sergio Ciani was awsome. He had great screen presence.

I made a fandub of this movie using that same copy.

Yes, Sergio was an exciting PEPLUM star!
