The production had to shut down when the money ran out. James H. Nicholson and Samuel Z. Arkoff were shown rushes from the film and agreed to buy the U.S. distribution rights which gave the producers the money to continue production. With their own Steve Reeves movie (retitled _Goliath and the Barbarians (1959)_) in theatres only five months after the box office sensation _Hercules (1959)_, American International had one of their biggest hits up to that time.

It's easy to get these Italian sandal-and-spear movies mixed up, but clearly the best "hero" to emerge from the genre was Steve Reeves. His mere presence elevates a movie from the "also-ran" to the "must-see" status. Reeves looks great in this predictable but lively outing which has him tied between two horses charging in opposite directions. Rather than being pulled apart like a wishbone, Reeves manages to rein them in, and you know something? His powerful physique and straining muscles almost make this seem plausible. The dubbing, as usual, is sloppy, but hey, who's looking at the lips?
