This was the first blockbuster in the Chanchada Movie gender. Spoof of Samson and Delilah (1949 version), it's actually a funny criticism on the Brazilian populist government. Horácio travels through time to Gaza where he meets Samson. Impressed by Horacio 'magic powers', Samson exchanges his hair for Horacio's cigarette lighter. With Samson's powers Horacio recreates the Brazilian government in the Gaza kingdom. With all of its defects. Of course, the former Gaza governors are not happy with the situation, but they can't do anything as long as Horacio has Samson's hair. And that's where Dalila enters of course...

Oscarito's performance is great (as usual), and everybody else does a good job. Plus every cent invested in the production was put in good use.
