Ganor, the leader of the Desert People, murders Sandor, the Sultan of Baghdad, and imprisons his eventual heirs, Daykor and Soraya, thus becoming the sole power in the country. Anthar, a young rebel, manages to get Soraya free. Eventually, she is captured by Akrim, a slave merchant, who sells her to Kamal, a wealthy Sheik. Soraya refuses to be the Sheik's girl, and plunges from a tower into the river - where she would have drowned if Anthar would not appear to save her once more. Together they go to Baghdad, where Anthar gets Daykor out of prison. But Ganor captures Anthar, and sets him to fight a rhinoceros to get rid of the freedom fighter. Daykor and Soraya return to Baghdad at the head of the revolted people, and after a siege, they take the city and joining with Anthar, will finally prevail over the tyrant.Written by
This was one of the many sword and sandal/mythological muscle man movies acquired by Joseph E. Levine's Embassy Pictures for release in the United States. Since there was a decline in the popularity of the genre, and many such films had been released to U.S. theaters, Embassy released it directly to television as part of their "Sons of Hercules" film package. The film was modified, pan and scanned, and re-titled "Devil of the Desert Against the Son of Hercules." Like other films in this film package, broadcasters could select versions which could be shown like a feature film, or shown in two one hour time frames as if it were a part of a television series.

Devil of the Desert Against the Son of Hercules (The Slave Merchants) (Movies Unlimited DVD-R)
Typical early 60's Italian-Spanish-French made sword-and-sandal film. Anthor, yet another son of Hercules, helps out a princess escaping the rout of her people after a desert baddie takes over her kingdom. Lots of running around and skirmishes between the good guys and the bad guys. The DVD-R I viewed was pretty good quality. Would be nice to see these peplum films re-mastered and released to DVD (not DVD-R). Recommended for fans of the genre.
