Synopsis

Samson and the Seven Miracles of the World
In 13th-Century China, the invading Mongol leader Garak (Leopoldo Severini) decides to kill a young prince before he can take the throne, staging a hunting accident to explain the death. The nomadic strongman Maciste (Gordon Scott) saves the prince from a tiger pit and brings him to a monastery, then attempts seven feats of strength which will repel the invaders according to prophecy. During one of Maciste's tests, he is captured and imprisoned beneath the Mongol palace. As rebellion swirls around Garach, Maciste summons all of his strength and breaks free, causing a spectacular earthquake which swallows the invading hordes. This standard sword-and-sandal adventure features some rousing battle scenes, but was so heavily edited for American release that only five of Maciste's seven tests remain. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Ali Baba and the Seven Saracens - Hawk of Bagdad
This may be Ali Baba and the Seven Saracens, but it got to television via one of those "Sons of Hercules" packages. Dan Harrison stars in the title role; the "Seven Saracens" (evidently the budget didn't allow for 40 thieves) is a rebel band, bent on ousting an evil king. Suspecting that Ali Baba is a member of the Saracens, the wicked monarch subjects him to all sorts of deviltry. But our hero survives to vanquish the villain. Released in Italy in 1963, Ali Baba and the Seven Saracens was prepared for American distribution the following year. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
