Gordon Scott as Mucius in COLOSSUS OF ROME (1964; aka Hero of Rome)

One of Gordon's most solid PEPLUM movie. This was one of three movies he made with director Giorgio Ferroni. They're all very good. The story was inspired by actual historical events and people even though they made Mucius more Hercules-like than he most likely was in reality. There are some nice prints of this out there, like the recent German DVD, but still no HD version available yet. This scene inspired a poster that's quite brutal, which I have in my collection.

Gordon is great! He always look in danger and defiant.
