Trivia

The French VHS PAL release by MPM and the Dark Side Collection VHS PAL bilingual release, Vulcan: Dieu du Feu - Hephaistos: o teos tis fotias, has a misleading back cover art of a mixed arena fight between a long aired woman and a man, which is NOT from this film. See more »

"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.
