Edit
Trivia French-born model-turned-actress Sylvia Lopez was already ill with leukemia at the time of filming. She was only able to complete one more film in 1959, and died at age 26 while working on another film. See more »
Goofs Watch closely the second time Hercules takes up Ulysses' challenge to bend the iron torch stand in an attempt to remember who he is. He successfully does so, and then unbends it just as easily, leaving a slight curve in the stem. However when he returns the stand to its original location, the stand is perfectly straight.
