Gordon Mitchell as Hamar in CAESAR AGAINST THE PIRATES (1962) 

A lot of people hate on this movie. I love it. I don't know why people hate it. Not only is it based on fact (Caesar was kidnapped by pirates) but it also has an entertaining performance by Gordon Mitchell. He's so over-the-top (like the movie) that you can't help but enjoy it. A lot of people say that Mitchell's best performance in a PEPLUM is FURY OF ACHILLES (1962) and I agree but for me this is equal to ACHILLES. The director, Sergio Grieco, turned the machismo up to 11 for this movie. I can't wait for it to be available in HD. Also known as JULIUS CAESAR AGAINST THE PIRATES.
