Maciste (Kirk Morris) is put to the test in ATLAS AGAINST THE CZAR (1964) 

The US version starts with a pre-credit message: KIRK MORRIS - The Legendary Atlas Now Known as "MACHISTE". The title is Atlas but in the movie he's called 'Machiste' or Maciste. This is one of many Feats of Strength scenes in this fun movie. It takes a while for Maciste to show up, and it's in a quite original way which adds to the lore of Maciste. Non-PEPLUM fans might think very little of these movies but for me, I absolutely enjoy them.
