Brad Harris stars as Hercules who helps fight a tyrannical ruler. The ruler is played by Serge Gainsbourg, who you'll recognize from a few of these kinds of films.
The queen of the kingdom has an eye for Hercules who falls for a handmaiden instead, which makes the queen very angry. Brad Harris does an excellent job and the mighty warrior with super human strength.
Hercules is put to many tests including fighting an ape-like monster in a cavern. I would recommend this to any peplum fan. The print from Mill Creek is ok, but again, I wish it were in widescreen.
