Brad Harris, as Hercules, fights Alan Steel in FURY OF HERCULES (1962) 

This movie is a Twin Production with SMASON (1961), which also stars Brad Harris and Alan Steel. Unlike this movie, Steel was a good guy in SAMSON. Their fights in both movies are the highlights and some of the best fights in any PEPLUM movie. Unfortunately, Steel's role is clearly secondary in FURY OF HERCULES and his screen time is not as extensive as the one he had in SAMSON. As good as Brad was, Alan stole his thunder whenever he was on screen. Alan eventually became a star of PEPLUM movies. And for good reasons. He had everything.
