Hercules, Samson and Ulysses

Now this is a smackdown, ancient-myth style. No octagonal steel cage. No rules. No surrender. It's Hercules vs. Samson in a brawl to outdo them all.

      Comments about Hercules, Samson and Ulysses:

      Great Saturday Matinee entertainment as only the 60's
      could provide. This film actually marked the end of a
      long run of the pelum films of the late 1950's to mid
      1960's as the Italian genre would switch it's profits
      margin to Westerns and Spy films. This film sports a
      good feel for what it is and delivers what the genre
      is known for (although Samson does not get that much screentime until the second act) Good campy fun all
      round Magnificent print in 1:78.1 ratio with trailer

      Fun Sword and Sandle Epic with humor both intentional and unintentional featuring amateurish special effects with surprisingly good second unit director footage showing impressive crowd and military scenes.

        Finally Found This Movie

        About Me Avid Moviegoer

        Comments about Hercules, Samson and Ulysses:

        I am a big fan of sword n sandal movies. I saw this in a theater when I was a kid and though I forgot the title, I remembered a couple of scenes and the fact that Samson & Hercules were both in the movie. Years later with the help of the internet I tried to find this movie but couldn't. About a year ago I found a website that specialized in rare movies and they had this title but it was of VHS quality and not an official release.

        I'm glad Warner Brothers home video had my e-mail address as I looked at an e-mail that they sent recently and this movie was one of the titles featured. I was very glad to read that the movie had been restored for release on DVD.

        Compared to the version I got from that internet sight the Warner's copy was pristine and the difference was like day and night. Some of these movies don't hold up after not seeing them in over 40 years but I'm glad to say that this is not true for SH&U. The acting is good as is the story. A good find.

        Comments about Hercules, Samson and Ulysses:

        This movie is a typical "spaghetti" style adventure classic with a twist - it blends two different religious cultures into one interesting "what if". What if a Greek demigod met a biblical hero? How would the people react? Would the men fight? Who would win? The meeting of two religious figures from two completely different cultures blends their ideologies into a fascinating action packed drama.

        I received a copy of this for review, and would describe the overall quality of this newly remastered movie on DVD as very good. It doesn't have that faded look that older movies have when they haven't been restored or remastered, the color is vibrant. The sound was good, I didn't detect any background noise or white noise or anything as I watched this. The picture was also very good qualitiy. This isn't the low quality movie you might find on some websites - it has obviously had new life breathed into it and it looks and sounds great!

          A not to be taken seriously adventure with an engaging star, Kirk Morris, who is not widely known in the U.S. One wonders what his real voice sounded like.
