Such a Great Italian Adventure Film
10 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hercules (Mickey Hargitay) must save his true love from an evil queen (Jayne Mansfield).

Okay, so the hydra is awesome and these are awesome costumes. Everything about this film is awesome. Awesome. Awesome. I am using that word repeatedly on purpose, because no other word sums this up.

Yeah, it may be a bit cheesy, but the Italians had a way of taking the Hercules story and running with it. Mario Bava did, I think even Lucio Fulci did it. Why not Bragaglia? Luca Palmieri is my go-to source for Italian film reviews. All he has to say about this one is that Mansfield is "super-shapely". Great analysis, Luca.
