This is the original Hercules that started it all! Swords and sandals, seductresses, gods, kings and monsters! The international smash hit Hercules set off a movie franchise based on Greek mythology that continues to burgeon today. Bodybuilder extraordinaire Steve Reeves paved the way for the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kevin Sorbo to become fantasy superstars with his muscled physique portraying a god in ancient Greece. And this, the original cinematic version, has aged well. Hercules battles armies, fearsome creatures, and contends with the temptations of beautiful women. Steve Reeves cuts a striking and memorable figure, garbed in simple white cloth and brandishing a sword. Thanks to his performance, Hercules, both the character the film, will truly be immortal.
