Gordon Scott stars as Hercules in this pilot show which has him fighting, what I think is a pretty cool looking sea monster.
The monster appears at regular intervals and has a virgin sacrifice given to it by the people of Troy. Hercules, Ulysses and Diogenes help the people overcome this beast and also help a beautiful young princess take the throne.
Diana Hyland is Princess Diana and although she doesn't have much to do, she is always beautiful and well worth watching. I hadn't seen this film in years and I had forgotten most of it.
I found it moved a a very good clip. The 47 minute running time passes quickly and if this had been a series, I am sure Joseph Levine would have made it a winner. Too bad it didn't come to pass.
My only complaint is the print from Mill Creek really needs color correction. Everything blue is green which results in bizarre sky color as well as a green ocean. I can't believe they didn't even bother correcting that!
If you get a chance you might want to check this out. the rest of the cast includes Gordon Mitchell, Paul Stevens and Roger Brown.
