Tor: Mighty Warrior (1963)
Original title: Taur, il Re della Forza Bruta
Peplum. Italy. Starring Joe Robinson, Bella Cortez & Harry Baird. Directed by Antonio Leonviola.
VPD (UK). English dubbed. Letterboxed (slightly).
Bizarre and crudely made peplum, but not without its entertainment value. Apparently the project begun as a Tarzan-ripp off, but not much of that was left in the finsihed product. A blatantly racist movie, poor Harry Baird (Four of the Apocalypse) had to degrade himself as Ubaratutu, the stupid and cowardly black sidekick to his "massa" Taur. The brittish mid-eighties video release tried to pass this off as a sword and sorcery flick á la Conan. 2/5
