Storyline

Revak is an Iberian prince from Penda, a small island where the Carthagian fleet ransacked and enslaved the surviving native men, including him. After an eventful passage aboard a galley, Revak becomes an elephant driver in Carthage city, and could become the favorite of mighty women, but has only one thirst: bloody revenge, at all cost, so the barbarian makes common cause with the attacking Romans, Carthage's historical enemy and rival for Mediterranean hegemony, scorning love...

My initiation to Swords and Sandals cinema
22 June 2009 | by (Chicago, IL, United States) – See all my reviews

I was at my cousins house when this telecast started. He proclaimed,'Rivak the Barbarian, this should be good'! So, we watched it. According to the IMDb info, I have the title correct, and, if the date is right, I was ten years old. I don't have that many memories of pre-1960 TV, so, this is right on the cusp. It was my first viewing of, (future Oscar winner), Jack Palance. Perfect facial features for a 'barbarian'. I recall an early line of his, something like,'what in the name of creation is that', upon his first sighting of an elephant. That's about where the memories end. Apparently it was on NBC before hardly anybody, (including us), had color TV. It led to a mid 1960s fandom of Hercules type flicks on TV.
