The Loves of Hercules (1960)

Original title: Gli Amori di Ercole

Peplum. Italy. Starring Mickey Hargitay, Jayne Mansfield, Massimo Serato & Moira Orfei. Directed by Carlo Ludovico Bragaglia.

Eagle 6 (Holland). English dubbed. Letterboxed. The print is a little too bright, but still better than all the other videos i've seen (swedish and brittish).

The then married team of blond bombshell Jayne Mansfield (playing two roles: blond when she's the "good" girl and with a black wig when she's "bad" - there's some peplum logic for you) and hungarian bodybuilder/showman/actor Mickey Hargitay (who thankfully dubs himself with his thick eastern-european accent) fight an evil queen, a hydra, a bull, amazons who turn men to trees etc. Very silly stuff but it will leave you with big smile on your face and a warm, bubbly feeling inside. If you want a really cheezy, daft peplum this one and Hercules Against the Moon Men are about as fun as they come! Did you know that Arnold Schwarznegger played Mickey Hargitay in an early 80s TV-movie? 4/5
