79 A.D. is a beautifully photographed but otherwise negligible Italian strongman movie. Young Roman gladiator Brad Harris plots the overthrow of corrupt rulers in the Eternal City. Susan Paget and Mara Lane are among the decoratively undressed damsels with whom the muscle-bound Harris must contend. The whole thing ends in Cinecitta's recreation of the Coliseum, with Harris taking on the best of the bad in AD 79. Though Hercules is nowhere to be seen, 79 A.D. was released to television as part of the "Sons of Hercules" package.
