Movie Info

This film stars beefcaker Alan Steel. Since the story takes place in 17th-century Spain, we suspect that the character's name wasn't "Hercules" when the film was originally released in Italy. No matter: the steely-eyed Steel is most impressive as he tilts with gypsies and evil dons.

Not a real Hercules film, but a strictly okay Zorro-ripoff.

Hercules and the Masked Rider This is a little bit of a different Hercules Movie. Filmed in 1964 by Romana Film (Italy). Romana Film had Approximately 81 Films to there credit of witch very few are on DVD here in the United States (A Shame). They did a number of Pirate films and Hercules type films. In this one Hercules joins forces with the Masked Rider, and it seems that the masked rider is a bigger star the Hercules. The Masked Rider runs around in a red cape and red mask. There is more sword play in this movie which reminds me of Three Musketeers, Zorro, and Pirate Films. And this is one of the few movies where some beautiful big breasted Italian beauty isn't falling for ole Hercules. Movie is set in Mid Evil Spain. How Hercules arrives in Spain is beyond me, most times he's running around Italy or Greece. Hercules is played by Alan Steel aka Sergio Ciani, aka John Wyler who played in a number of Hercules movies. I believe though this is the first one I have seen him in, of all the actors who played Hercules he appears to be the least muscular (At least in this movie he was). The Masked Rider Don Juan (How Original is that) is played by Mimmo Palmara aka Dick Palmer who looks like a Young, better Built Sylvester Stallone except a little bigger nose. Anyway when it come to Hercules movies have to give this one a 2 1/2 stars. My copy came from the Mill Creek Warriors Collection 50 pack, these 50 packs put out by Mill Creek are worth the price. Best deal I have found is on Amazon.
