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!

One of my Favorite Films
12 February 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Its not high art but it is highly entertaining. One of the many retitled Maciste films about a muscle man who wanders the world and helps out people in need. This time he's in China and helps a country find freedom by literally ringing the bell of freedom. It has a couple of good fights, the hero saving men buried up to their heads from having chariots with bladed wheels from running over them and of course the classic causing an earthquake as he frees himself from his burial place in a mountain. It has exotic locals and takes itself just seriously enough that you can buy whats going on. If you get the chance try it.
