With the massive exterior sets, lavish interior sets and a multitude of Asian extras left over from this production, Panda had writers Oreste Biancoli
and Duccio Tessari
fashion a sword-and-sandal/mythological muscleman epic, Samson and the 7 Miracles of the World
(1961), placing hero Maciste in a Chinese setting. Genre specialist Riccardo Freda
was brought in to direct, Gordon Scott
was cast as Maciste (renamed "Samson" for the U.S. version) and Yôko Tani
was kept on as the female lead. It became regarded as one of the better films of that genre. See more
