Editorial Reviews

Now this is a smackdown, ancient-myth style. No octagonal steel cage. No rules. No surrender. It's Hercules vs. Samson in a brawl to outdo them all, hurling spears, heaving chunks of pillars and, in the clinches, bending thick iron rods around each other. Hercules had set out to find Samson and deliver him to the Philistines in exchange for the imprisoned Ulysses and other Ithacans. Samson, of course, fights rather than submits. But in the course of the titanic Herc-Sam clash, something happens. The two rivals develop a mutual respect and decide to join forces against their common foes: the Philistines. From an enduring filmmaking tradition that unites monsters (Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man), desperados (Return of the Badmen) and superheroes (The Avengers) comes a not-to-be-overlooked film that brings together Hercules, Samson and Ulysses. Strap up your sandals' calf-high leather laces and get ready to rumble.

I think the first time I saw this one it was in the early 70s , I hade recorded it from the TV probably in the 1980s on VHS tape , I didn;t think I'd ever see it on DVD, and then, there it was on Amazon , To my surprize not only was the picture quality great , but it was actully in Widescreen too, I think this was one of the better sword and sandal , movies that was made , Right up there with Hercules, and Hercules Unchained, This is good new for my movie Collection , If you like this stuff get this one.

If you love Peplum, this is for you. Not the best in the Steve Reeves-Hercules mode, but quite fun nevertheless. The plot, if one can call it that, involves a journey by Hercules (Kirk Morris) and Ulyssses (comedian Enzo Cerusico) to catch a sea monster, a storm blows them off course, so, of course, they end up in Judea (!!!), where they get involved in a plot with Samson (!!!) to dethrone an evil ruler. (Yes, I'm dizzy from just telling about it.) Liana Orfei provides a very scrumptious and duplicitous femme fatale and even gets to perform a barely adequate hooch number. The production values are quite impressive for a peplum not starring Reeves. There are many lavish sets and hordes of extras involved in impressive battle scenes. Kirk Morris (not his real moniker) is just fine in the titular role (not a bad turn for an ex-gondolier muscleboy.) Believe me, you've seen worse (some of those Maciste fliks come to mind).

The print by MGM is presented in an 1:85 anamorphic format, though I suspect the original was shot in a 2:35 aspect ratio, but you get a picture that will fill out your entire flat screen panel. It is sharp with good color and you won't miss anything on the sides (of the screen).

Yes, another movie with "big" men, ....and tiny costumes.

Triple your value here, ...although Ulysses certainly does not go to the same gym that the actors who play the other two title roles do.
Just about all the expected inclusions you'd expect from this genre, .....with the one noticeable exception.
There's usually some ingenious and dastardly way to execute the innocent employed by the villain.
Nothing like that here.
All the other features are present though.

The obligatory dance sequence of course, ...although it's only done by Delilah,(remember that name!), and it's a pretty lame turn in fact. Even the King/tyrant it's being performed for starts to yawn and gets distracted, ...much to the displeasure of she who is writhing in the veils!
The veils are slowly being removed by a muscular man wielding a bullwhip! (Now there's an original touch I bet Salome didn't think of!)

There's the virtuous little wife waiting at home for Hercules to return. Yes, Herc is married here and even has a blond haired little rug-rat, who in one amazing scene uses his dad's mighty hammies and tight buttocks as a punching bag!
Herc wears VERY short skirts and leaves plenty on show for the kid to play with!
Anyway, ...off Herc goes with Ulysses in a Greek-style boat ostensibly to kill a "sea-monster" that's been destroying shipping.
It's really a sea-lion when you get to see it, ....filmed to look bigger, but just an ordinary sea-lion after all. No monster effects, which was a bit disappointing for me.

Then there's the usual storm, blowing the ship off course and destroying it. Survivors, ...including Herc and Ulysses (of course!

It is fitting that Director Pietro Francisci who gave us the original 'HERCULES' aka 'LE FATICHE DI ERCOLE' -1958 and its superb sequel 'HERCULES UNCHAINED' aka 'ERCOLE E LA REGINA DI LIDIA'- 1959 both starring Steve Reeves would return to the genre six years later to deliver one of the last and best of its type 'HERCULES, SAMSON, & ULYSSES' aka 'ERCOLE SFIDA SANSONE'- 1964. By this time the European sword and sandal pepla were in decline tag teaming every conceivable muscleman against hokey villains and card board monsters. Here we have a good script by Francisci making the film a prequel to the biblical Samson and Delilah story and intertwining it with characters of Greek mythology. The production values are excellent and the acting above average for a film of this type even making the English dubbing palatable. Kirk Morris who was no stranger to the genre having played in Director Ricardo Freda's underrated 'MACISTE IN HELL' aka 'MACISTE AL'INFERNO' -1963 (beware the wretched television print titled 'THE WITCH'S CURSE' which totally distorts the storyline) and many others. Liana Orfei makes a fetching Delilah and Samson and Ulysses are aptly portrayed by Richard Lloyd and Enzo Cerusico never burying the film in hokey shenanigans and comic relief which was so prolific in these final forays. Hercules's wife Iole and young son appear in cameo making this a sequel to the first 1950's films. With a rousing score by Angelo Francisco Lavagnino known for his melancholic music for Director Eugene Lourie's monster epic 'GORGO'- 1961 and crisp cinematography by Silvano Ippoliti , this film comes highly recommended for fans of these actioners. Warner Archive releases it in a flawless 1.85 DVD-R with a US trailer its only extra. Lets hope they continue to dive into their coffers and release more of these gems to collectors.
