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!

Samson and the 7 Miracles of the World- true spectacle!
21 November 2001 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Bold as the fiery women of Atlanta, as explosive as Attila bursting out of the Balkans to ram his savage troops against all Europe- filmdom's greatest sword and sandal Titan- Samson(Machiste) faces and wins the cinema's most spectacular battle as he performs his 7 Miracles of the World in Colorscope and Stereophonic sound. Ancient Rome vividly comes alive as every nickle of the 4-million dollar budget is on the screen. enough of the P.R. from 1961, it's a poorly-dubbed overacted absolutely standard muscleman pic from the factory.......after failing with the original title, it was re-released often and often on triple-bills with Samson and 7 Miracles the most successful, and dishonest.
