Dina De Santis and Alan Steel in HERCULES AGAINST ROME (1964) 

This is fun action-packed PEPLUM with Alan is top form. I have few quibbles about it. My only major complaint is the so-called Love Interest. I'm actually fine if the Hero of a story remains single but in this movie, Hercules spends a lot of time with beautiful ladies, including Dina or more importantly, Wandisa Guida, and by the end of the movie, Wandisa hooks up with Mimmo Palmara not Herc. It's very odd. It always baffled me. This is not the only PEPLUM movie that does this. The movie needs some sort of Romantic angle but it's not coming from the our Hero, which again is fine. But in this one it's sorta odd.
