When Maciste saves the small child from the lion, the shots of the real lion (with Gordon Mitchell's stand-in for the sequence) show that the claws are not out and the paws are not being used to strike but rather happily returning the hug it's receiving. See more »

Atlas Against The Cyclops finds Gordon Mitchell as Maciste battling the evil one eyed creature who together with the daughter of Circe is taking vengeance against the descendants of Ulysses. If you'll remember your classical Greek tales, Ulysses freed himself from Circe and blinded the Cyclops. Now their descendants are wreaking what they consider just desserts to the Ulysses family.
It might have gone all right for them except that Circe's evil granddaughter queen of Circe falls big time for Maciste and all those muscles. She forgets her mission with one look at the big guy.
There was a black body builder named Paul Wynter who was appearing in these peplums at the time and truth be told he was far better built than Gordon Mitchell. Why she was bothering with Maciste when she had Wynter's character Mumba in the palace is beyond me.
Still Maciste performs all the deeds required of him and even rides a horse into the sunset like a good cowboy hero would.
Nothing special here though.
