HERCULES! Starring Steve Reeves!!!!

Recommended Posts

For me, there is only ONE 'Hercules' and that is the great Steve Reeves! Made in 1957 and released in the U.S. in 1959, Pietro Francisci's film hasn't lost any of its shine when it was released in the United States by Joseph E. Levine. With photography by the great Mario Bava and its heroic film score by Enzo Massatti, this film, the film captures the myth of the son of Zeus and his adventures with Jason, as they and the crew of the Argo search for the Golden Fleece. The beautiful Sylva Koscina heads a great cast of familiar Italian actors that include Gianna Maria Canale, Fabrizio Mione, Ivo Garrani  and Arturo Dominici. A beautiful region WS dvd was released in France (in English).  Hopefully a beautiful Bluray, with both English language tracks (one was prepared in Europe the other was supervised by Joseph Levine in NY).

You're absolutely right that this is a film deserving of a quality reissue. It's been poorly represented for so long by underwhelming prints. I love the description on the DVD cover: "Un Film Gigantesque". It sure is. It stands head-and-extremely-broad-shoulders above most of the wanna-be imitators released for years afterward.

Thank you and I agree, Steve Reeves is the only Hercules. I recently requested  TCM play The thief of Bagdad with Steve Reeves. I know they play the Sabu version more but his is fun too. 

He had the best body,
