Hercules and the Masked Rider (1964/Italy Alan Steel

Hercules and the Masked Rider (1964/Italy Alan Steel)

Original title: "Golia E Il Cavaliere Mascherato"  During the zenith of sword-and-sandal films, the Italians started to experiment, often by crossing genres such as the swashbuckler with the traditional muscleman tale.  This one, a by-product of Lenzi's 'Zorro Contro Maciste', carries the hybrid to perfection. A Zorro-like character (played by Mimmo Palmara) receives help from Hercules himself (Alan Steel), as together they battle the forces of a tyrant who is lording over the Spanish countryside.  Real swashbuckling fun which also stars Pilar Cansino, Arturo Dominici, Jose Greci, Dina De Santis, Loris Gizzi, and others.  Directed by Piero Pierotti.  Dubbed in English, with Dutch subtitle
