Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Filmed in 1960 but not available to American audiences until 1963, Hercules Against the Barbarians was also released as Hercules Against the Barbarian; evidently "pluralism" works best at the box-office. This time the legendary muscleman's toga and sandals are filled by Mark Forest. Somewhat anachronistically, Hercules is called upon to fight off invading Mongol hordes. It's likely that Hercules Against the Barbarians was lensed at the same time as Hercules Against the Mongols; it's equally likely that both films were culled from a longer sword-and-sandal epic.
