This is the film that started the craze for movies about muscle-bound mythological heroes. By the time the genre had run its course in the mid-1960s, 170 such films had been produced in Italy. This represented approximately 10% of Italian film production during this period. See more »

Not sure if anyone will read because of out-of-style Film
I had to leave some comment because this is the first movie I remember going to see.
After the movie I remember acting out the labors of Hercules in front of the movie-house with my friends after the show. This movie seemed to put an end to all cowboys and my other heroes Roy Rogers and Trigger. I was only 7 years old but it seems like yesterday.
This movie was very impressive since after 42 years I still admire Steve Reeves. I understand he is still living a very healthy life even now.
