Synopsis

La Furia di Ercole
Originally titled La Furia di Ercole, Fury of Hercules stars Brad Harris as the mythical muscleman. Herc's ire is raised when he comes across the oppressed populace of a totalitarian country. The evil ruler seems to lead a charmed life: no one can touch him, but he can wreak plenty of havoc on those under his thumb. Hercules decides to put a stop to this, but it won't be easy: it never is. In some markets, Fury of Hercules was retitled Fury of Samson, necessitating a whole new English-language soundtrack. The film reverted to Fury of Hercules when it was picked up by TV's "Sons of Hercules" syndicated package. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Atlas in the Land of the Cyclops
In this sword-and-sandal spectacle, a man-eating one-eyed giant is terrorizing the people of the city of Sadok, who also have to put up with an evil, murderous queen. However, when our hero Atlas (or Maciste, as he's called in this movie) arrives to save the local populace from becoming breakfast entrees, the queen falls in love with him. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi

Il Trionfo di Maciste
Conqueror of the Orient
When a treacherous despot overthrows the family thrown, the son of the fallen sultan vows to do everything within his power to reclaim what it rightfully his. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Queen of the Amazons
In this adventure, a devoted fiancee journeys to the jungle to take on the terrifying Amazon women who have been holding her lover hostage. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Fire Monsters Against the Son of Hercules
The titular monster is the multi-headed Hydra, a familiar figure in sword-and-sandal epics. The hero, played by Reg Lewis, must undergo several daunting tasks before he is considered worthy of combat with the Hydra. Though episodic, the film holds together pretty well. It is compromised only by the inconsistent camerawork and the crude English dubbing. The hero, incidentally, isn't really a "Son of Hercules"; he has been so designated so that the film will be compatible with the Sons of Hercules package syndicated to American TV stations in the early 1960s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

L'Ultimo dei Vikinghi
In this historical drama, a Viking prince returns to his homeland only to learn that his father has been murdered by King Sven of Norway. He then discovers that Sven is forcing his sister to marry in order to create an alliance with the Danes. The prince rallies his loyal fighters to storm the king's fortress in an attempt to rescue his sister. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The White Warrior
Although this uninspired Italian adventure film is loosely based on Leo Tolstoy's tale about a 19th-century clash between Czarist Russia and several ethnic groups in the Caucasus, Tolstoy's original talent is buried. Ponderous and quickly put together, the story stars Steve Reeves as the muscular hero known as the "White Warrior" who leads the defence against the Russians. ("White" in this case refers to his warrior's garb.) His defence strategy would be an easier task if there were not political intrigue and romantic hurdles to overcome within his own camp, obstacles which provide grist for the narrative mill. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Colossus and the Amazon Queen
Two gladiators are captured by an Amazon army, and are forced to fight against invading pirates. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Duel of the Champions
Set in ancient Rome, this film follows the struggle of Roman triplets as they battle their Alban arch-enemies to prevent Rome from being annexed to Alba. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

Damon and Pythias
This classic Greek tale of a friendship that overcomes even death makes for an interesting sword-and-sandal saga, with Guy Williams in the role of Damon. An apt choice since Williams is himself an expert swordsman, as partially demonstrated in his role as Zorro on American television (1957-59). Pythias (Don Burnett) has been caught plotting the assassination of King Dionysis I of Syracuse (Arnoldo Foa). Before his execution, Dionysis grants Pythias leave to put his affairs in order because Damon volunteers to stand in his stead if Pythias does not come back to face the executioner. Damon's act is considered foolish. He was safe, why should Pythias come back? But the two are devotees of the Pythagorean mysteries, and their faith in brotherly love goes beyond self-interest. When Pythias does return in the allotted time, King Dionysis is impressed enough to have a change of heart. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Vengeance of Ursus
A small village is in peril, and the only man capable of saving the day is an athletic superman whose strength and agility far exceeds that of any normal man. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
