When Igor (Livio Lorenzon) slapped Landa (Chelo Alonso), the fiery Cuban actress couldn't help herself, and slapped him back. After ruining a couple of takes this way, the old director lost his patience and had Chelo's hands tied off screen.

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?
