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 Yoko 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!

User Reviews

Another glorified muscleman movie expertly exploited by American International into drive-in big bucks.
24 March 2003 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

Ex-Tarzan Gordon Scott is the beefcake in this low-budget but exotic sword-and-sandal potboiler, set, oddly enough, in China. The set pieces are convincingly done for a mini-epic of this sort, and Scott appears to have done some amazing stuntwork in a chariot sequence. Les Baxter's recognizable GOLIATH AND THE BARBARIANS score has been superimposed once again by American International to good effect. One of the better retro-stud peplums for those interested.
