Interesting list of examples. The movie OUTRAGE I referred to earlier was the 1950 film directed by Ida Lupino. Not the 1964 remake of RASHOMON which had a similar title (THE OUTRAGE).

The Sword and the Sorcerer

Jason and the Argonauts

The Beastmaster

The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad

The Golden Voyage of Sinbad

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger

Conan the Destroyer

Deathstalker

Red Sonja

The Scorpion King

Hercules Unchained

Dragonslayer

Maleficent

Sorry if it seemed unclear. Your examples are fine.

I'd say it is fantasy that uses historical elements...it might even be a form of alternate history.

or...

Fatherland (1994) - What if Germany won WW2?

CSA: Confederate States of America (2004) - What if the South had won the Civil War?

The Man in the High Castle (2015- ) - What if the Axis Powers had won WW2?

Inglourious Basterds (2009) - The last act takes this WW2 tale into alternate history territory.

Call Northside 777--Richard Conte's wait for justice is aided by James Stewart

The Abominable Dr. Phibes--years of planning revenge on the doctors he held responsible for his wife's death pays off (well, largely) for Vincent Price

The Story of Louis Pasteur--years of work and ridicule by other doctors ends with accolades  for Paul Muni

And Then There Were None--'someone' (in case somebody hasn't seen it, I won't use the name..) plans and waits for years for the perfect setting to administer their own 'justice'

An Affair to Remember--Deborah Kerr thinks Cary Grant is worth the wait (well..who wouldn't?)   Related image
