Trivia

Two English-dubbed versions of this movie exist. In the Archer Video version (AR 2006), released on VHS in the UK in 1983, Mickey Hargitay spoke with his own voice, making this the only Italian epic in which Hercules speaks with a Hungarian accent. One typical line comes across as: "Opena gate. I want to speak with yoore keeng." In the Trimark version (VM 7351D), released on DVD in the US in 2000, Hargitay is dubbed by a standard American voice actor. Queen Deianira also undergoes a vocal transformation between versions. Jayne Mansfield referred to the monster as the "heedra," but her dubbed voice says "hydra." See more »

cheesy film...different versions/scenes...oohh maaann!!
8 July 2000 | by von-13See all my reviews

The totally rare Danish videorelease of this "trashy" film is full screen running 96.00 mins precisely. Italian tv channel RaiUno showed a letterboxed print(1: 1.70 cirka) the other day running ½ a minnute shorter. The 2 versions features a whole bunch of scenes filmed from different/alternative angles and many are diff/alternative takes. Quite "interesting" to compare actually...if you are into this sort of movie-watching. One scene found only in the Danish version shows Miss mansfield (hidden behind some see-through cloth)covering her naked body with some clothes. Extremely...uuhuuhhh...daring!!!!! I give it 5 out of 10.....but "reflecting" on it afterwards is worth a good laugh and....10 !!! Cheers sandal-genre comrades!!!
