sea monster vs Hercules

this is from "Hercules and the Princess of Troy" which was a pilot for a US television series. it's pretty good, proving that this could have worked in a one hour format. several peplum actors were in this mini-movie, and they do a swell job. I wonder how it would have played out as a weekly series. the budget couldn't have handled a monster like this every week.

it's nice to hear all the stars using their real voices, rather than the ones usually dubbed in Europe. the monster is done by Carlo Rambaldi, who went on to do many many other monsters, aliens and interesting life forms.
