Storyline

In 16th century Spain, Don Francisco reluctantly betroths his daughter, Blanca, to the arrogant Don Ramiro in order to preserve the lands in the family estate. Then Don Juan, Don Francisco's nephew and Blanca's true love, returns from the war in Flanders. Don Juan dons a mask and joins with a gypsy band led by Estella to fight against the forces of Don Ramiro. In this effort he's aided by a bare-chested muscleman and also by Captain Blasco who works for Don Ramiro but whose sympathies lie elsewhere. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Zorro, Hercules, and Ettore Manni
7 February 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"Everybody's favorite Greek strongman is back and this time he's helping the innocent people of Spain in their battle against some evil Dons and their loyal conquistadors. Hercules teams up with a masked avenger, who hopes to free the people of the tyrannical rule of the wealthy Dons and lead them into a life of peace and prosperity for all. With Hercules' mighty muscles and the daring skills of the Masked Rider, the two men wage a war against overwhelming forces," according to the DVD sleeve description.

Re-titled "Hercules and the Masked Rider" for American consumption.

Alan Steel as "Hercules" turns out not to be the star of this Spanish swordplay. Arguably, it's Mimmo Palmara as "Don Juan" alias "The Masked Rider" (think "Zorro!"). Naturally, they have a shirtless (knife) battle, then become chums. The sexy women are led by busty blonde José Greci (as Blanca) and beautiful red-haired Pilar Cansino (as Estella). The ladies keep their shirts on, firmly. By the end of the picture, Ettore Manni (as Blasco) co-stars. Villainous Arturo Dominici (as Ramiro) is most impressive.
