Most of the Italian produced sword and sandal/mythological muscle man movies were shot in the American Technicolor or Eastman Color process. This film was shot using the Italian produced Ferraniacolor film stock. See more »

For its release in the United States under the title "Goliath and the Barbarians," American International trimmed almost 15 minutes of film, replaced the English language dubbing with their own English dubbed track and replaced the score with one recorded by Les Baxter. It became American International's biggest hit up to that time. It set a precedent for American International's handling of later foreign negative pick-ups. See more »
I saw Steve Reeves In Goliath and the Barbarians first . I was nine years old. I am now 51. I had been enchanted with Samson And Delilah with Victor Mature up until I saw Stevie in this movie. Stevie Immediately made me a follower of his movies after that. I want them all!
If movie makers can bring Weismuller's tarzan movies to dvd or vhs, then, with Steve Reeves' baby -boomer following ,it should be lucrative to bring ALL of his movies back. If I'm willing to buy all of them then hundreds of thousands baby-boomers are too. I got very lucky and dubbed Goliath from a television transmission in the late 80's. Even my children liked this movie then and they still watch it now! This movie is really that remarkable and probably that marketable. Keep Steve Reeves alive; keep his artistic creations alive. Please put Goliath and his other movies on plastic so we can play our part. THANKS.
