Trivia

With the massive exterior sets, lavish interior sets and a multitude of Asian extras left over from Marco Polo (1962), Panda Productions had writers Oreste Biancoli and Duccio Tessari fashion a sword-and-sandal/mythological muscleman epic - a genre that had become highly popular around the world - placing hero Maciste in a Chinese setting. Genre specialist Riccardo Freda was brought in to direct, Gordon Scott was cast as Maciste (renamed "Samson" for the U.S. version) and Yôko Tani was kept on as the female lead. See more »

Goofs

When the new execution device is being demonstrated, Maciste makes his way through a crowd of Chinese people. Although he is much larger than anyone else, and is almost naked, nobody seems to notice him. See more »

Quotes

Kiutai: [Motioniong to two collapsed men under torture] There're your rebels...
[adressing Princess Lei-ling]
Kiutai: Their torture has gone on for a month. Tell me now, you'll tell me what I want to know? Where is the rebel leader?
[pause]
Kiutai: So, you wont speak? I'll loose your tongue, even if that kills you!

Maciste is the man who can
27 April 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not bad as far as peplum goes, with former Tarzan Gordon Scott plying his trade as Maciste (or Samson in the English dub), go-to man of steel helping a Chinese princess (Tani) return to her people after she's captured by the evil Garak (Severini) who then wages war upon the poor villagers and Monks to retrieve her and his pride.

Scott is capable and ably supported by French-Japanese actress Yoko Tani, while French beauty Helene Chanel belies her youth in a physically demanding role of the imperial turncoat who helps Maciste smuggle the Princess out of the fortified compound in which she's held.

Stuntwork is creditable and there's a chariot-execution scene in which big Gordo flexes his frame to save the heads of a few petty thieves, but otherwise, it's very much more of the same. As usual, the sets and costumes are lavish and if you're partial to peplum movies, then this Maciste instalment should be mildly entertaining.
