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.
