1960 - THE LOVES OF HERCULES, whacky Italian Hercules movie

See the two famous love birds Jayne Mansfield and Mickey Hargitay star together in another goofy Italian Hercules movie.  Mansfield is 4 months pregnant at the time of filming so we don't get to see a lot of her famous figure.  Hargitay runs around in a short skirt for the length of the film.

See Hargitay as Hercules knock down an Iron gate with a big phoney tree which he can barely hang on to.  Watch as Hargitay does battle with the Hydra a life sized monster that can barely keep it's heads in motion much less move. Be astounded as Hargitay fights a gorilla monster with really bad teeth as is slobbers all over Mansfield. 

See the viewer try to decipher this ridiculous plot which has something to do with Mansfield's evil father killing Hercules first wife and Hargitay as Hercules almost immediately falling in love with Mansfield while his wife is barely in the ground.  It all ends with Hargitay leading some kind of revolution in the end.

See this writer trying to give this film some sort of rating is it camp or is it just plain bad?  Only the gods on Olympus will have that answer.

98 minutes.
