Alan Steel as Hercules in SAMSON AND THE MIGHTY CHALLENGE (1964) 

This is a fun movie with a colourful cast and production. It is a comedy so people making fun of it...uh the movie made fun of itself. Anyway, I love this movie even though it's nowhere near being perfect. There are some boring scenes, certainly to do with the daughter and her boyfriend, which goes on longer than it needed to be. A slightly tighter edit and this action comedy would be a classic. Steel always excelled as Hercules. Steve Reeves is my favourite and Alan Steel is second. The one thing I'm critical is Alan's tunic here strapped from the left shoulder. I think it would better from the right shoulder. Or not strap at all. 😁

Alan Steel was gorgeous! Yep, I'd prefer no strap at all, too! :)
