Maciste (Kirk Morris) gets the point in COLOSSUS AND THE HEADHUNTERS (1963) 

This is a cliché of sorts. PEPLUM heroes often seem invincible but they do get hurt, like in this scene. It's either an arrow or claws from an animal. This movie uses scenes from COLOSSUS OF THE STONE AGE (1962) for the volcano / earthquake scenes. And MACISTE - AVENGER OF THE MAYANS (1965), also starring Kirk, uses big chunks of this movie and COLOSSUS OF THE STONE AGE as well. They would make an interesting triple feature. I like it. Kirk is a bit stiff in it but in this scene he's quite convincing.
