Trivia

This was the pilot for a TV series titled "Hercules", that never materialized. The series would have Hercules (Gordon Scott) as Hercules, master of the ship Olympia, along with the philosopher Diogenes (Paul Stevens), returning the young Ulysses (Mart Hulswit) to Thebes. Each episode would have the ship stopping at various locations where they would face challenges and adventures. The producers were planning to recruit U.S. actors familiar to American TV viewers, especially actors who were already in Europe working on other projects. This was the last appearance in a peplum, as he moved on to its replacement genre, the spaghetti western. See more »

solid
9 December 2009 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

It's silly to complain that this is a B-movie made for television - because that's exactly what it is, and doesn't pretend to be anything else. And here's the good news - it's a pretty darn good B-movie made for television. One of the major problems with standard Italian Hercules films is that the are usually 100- 120 minutes long, too long for the amount of story they have to tell; consequently there's a lot of padding to them, usually in the middle. This film is kept lean and tight at 47 minutes - only the highlights of the story are here, and that's all we need.

I must remark that production values are gorgeous for mid-60s television. The acting is professional, the pacing is snappy, the story interesting (for this genre), the special fx are on a par with better television sci-fi/fantasy shows of the period - this is solid B-movie entertainment. Worth checking out.
