Hercules (1958)

Hercules is a 1958 Steve Reeves movie. Mario Bava did the cinematography.

youtube has this online:

Moria says, "The spectacle – the swordplay, the wrestling, the romance – all has its own naively earnest charm". DVDTalk opens by saying, "Hercules is one of the more important trend-setting Italian pictures of the sound era" and notes "the film's strongest asset is the remarkable camera work of Mario Bava". 10,000 Bullets reviews the film and a DVD release.

    The best of the sword and sandal films out of Italy , because of Steeve Reeves the personification of Hercules himself .Although ''Hercules Unchainned '' may be the better of the pair because of the performance of Sergio Fantoni as the mad king of Thebes , Etocles and Sylvia Lopez .
