"It's a battle between mortals and gods as the right to claim the Goddess of Love as their own brings the Roman gods of myth to life in this classic tale. Vulcan, the God of Fire, wishes to have the beautiful Venus as his bride and will battle strange creatures and fellow gods alike, in his quest to win her. Amazing feats of strength and fantastic fights abound in this tale of adventure and true love," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis. "Vulcan, Son of Jupiter" is a dubbed in English, Italian-made feature. Bouncy, bountiful Bella Cortez and alluring Annie Gorassini are the fleshy film's G-rated headlights, er… highlights.
