Hercules and the Black Pirate (1964)
Rip roaring action film is a great way to spend a rainy night on the couch. Full of good good guys and bad bad guys this is a film where you can boo and cheer depending upon who as the upper hand.
At a time when the sword and sandal craze was chugging along some producers wanted to spice things up and setting the action in another time period was often a way to do it. Some times it works and some times it didn't. Here it does. Frankly if star Alan Steel didn't end up with a torn shirt that makes him look like Hercules or one of the other ancient muscle men you couldn't call this swords and sandal film.
This film is a lot of fun and highly recommended.
