I remember watching this classic on Saturday mornings (some years back). Okay - my purchase is a nostalgia trip. This is my evaluation of this recording of a public domain movie:
Mindless entertainment featuring the premier bodybuilder turned actor
Not a DVD with movies on both sides
Poor construction of DVD entries/features
Movie "special features" resolve to opening screen (choice of either feature)
First feature, Hercules, goes black screen and does not resolve to menu after playing
SUMMARY: What can you expect for less that $4? Use a torrent download if you want a better production.

If you are reading this then you most likely already know the movies and have watched then before. I first saw these two on TV back in the 60's as a kid, it brings back old memories. This review will be on picture quality only, because I think that is what the buyers of this DVD will want. The picture is good, not great, but good. It is in full screen as stated, and there are a few small flaws with picture quality. This should not be a factor in owning, this DVD, as these are two classics from the past. If you enjoyed watching them 50 years ago, you will be happy to see them again. If you are young and these were before your time, then just keep in mind when these two films were shot, and nothing has been digitally redone, like you can get in some of the older films. There is a limited market and cost always plays into things. Sit back and enjoy a piece of history, you will feel like you have moved back in time.
