I guess 2 musclemen are better than one. We have Brad Harris as Samson and Alan Steel as Millstone? Both help the deposed queen regain control of the throne from Warkalla played by Serge Gainsbourg and Romilda played by Mara Berni. Samson has super strength and his side kick comedy relief looks like a young Charles Laughton. A few good fight scenes, the best when Samson and Millstone fight over a boar, but the movie was also one. Really nice looking widescreen dubbed print.

I remember seeing and liking it, but I don't remember Alan Steel be in it.  Are you yanking our chains when Millstone was actually Maciste?

I wonder if 1962's FURY OF HERCULES is a quasi-sequel to this, since it has Harris as the main hero (called "Samson" in some releases) but no Alan Steel, and apparently Gainsborough plays a different villain.
