Here is why I would give this 50-Pack, and ONLY this 50-Pack, the lofty "five stars". It's quite simple, really. Let's say you're thinking of getting the Western 50-Pack. Here are a few universally recognized masterpieces of that particular genre: Red River, High Noon, Shane, Rio Bravo, The Searchers, the Sergio Leone films, the John Ford films, the Anthony Mann films, a couple of Sam Peckinpahs, etc., etc.. But you know what? You will not find any of 'em in the Western 50-Pack. Same can be said of getting truly great movies in any of the Horror, Crime, Mystery, etc.. Instead you will get a collection of really obscure, low-budget curiosities--which is not automatically a reason not to buy the set!! Some of those little B and C movies are pretty cool and fun to watch.
But with the "muscleman" epic in general, there ARE NO masterpieces to speak of. The 1960's were the golden age of the Italian macho man movie, and you get virtually everything from those wonderful days in this set!!
I am old enough to fondly recall that period, and how eagerly I awaited Saturday afternoons, when I could watch "Epic Theatre", presented weekly by a local TV station. I would watch the likes of the muscular Reg Park, Gordon Scott, Reg Lewis, Dan Vadis, et. al, engage in battle with dragons, marauders, monsters, rebels, soldiers, and other formidable adversaries.
In every one of these movies you'd have the following:
(1.) Muscular Hero (scantily clad, though every other man is dressed for late fall);
(2.) Evil Temptress (scantily clad queen or sorceress with big bosom (usually dark-haired, big fake eyelashes and makeup, always trying to get Mr. Muscles into her boudoir, but with a dark, sinister ulterior motive, having to do with a lust for power or wealth);

*BUT*, anybody who loves Peplum "Sword and Sandal" muscleman films with Gladiators, Hercules/Sampson types, lots of Pizza Pizza guards with plumed helmets and gorgeous Italian supporting actresses dressed in flimsy garments performing Veil Dances OR any student of Italian cult B cinema like myself will be well served by this collection. Filmmakers like Mario Bava, Ruggero Deodato, Antonio Margheriti, writers like Ernesto Gastaldi, Bruno Corbucci, composers like Marcello Giombini & Bruno Niccola -- they all got their start in cinema working on these Peplum cheapies, some of which are very imaginatively staged and filled with a kind of endearing charm which seems beyond the grasp of today's big name filmmakers.Read more ›
