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 »

I am a hero make me a sandwich
14 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joseph E. Levine and B movie maven Albert band get together to produce a TV pilot that never got off the ground because the tykes were beginning to bore by this time but for revisiting a campy genre this one is painless and fills the void.The plot is well...minimal so who cares? The main points here are in their highest form. It's short and sweet,beefy and is never at a loss for action. It's also mercifully done in English. The Sea Critter is a Carlo Rombaldi creation (E.T.) worthy of A.I.P. creature constructor Paul Blaisdel's envy.In short it's wacky and original if not very menacing.The major fault I would say that in comparison to many other sword and sandal epics this one is not too babe-a-licious.We only get one semi hot princess and the obligatory harem dances and snake charmers are conspicuously absent.Guess they weren't aiming the series towards the dads. At 47 minutes it's a sweaty trip to fun land.
