Synopsis by Hal Erickson
We're not sure who plays what, but we do know that Frank Gordon and Kirk Morris star in the Italian sword and sandal exercise Machiste Against Hercules in the Vale of Woe. This one incorporates an intriguing sci-fi twist, as two modern-day fight promoters decide to go back in time to the days when strength contest were really strength contests. Rounding up Machiste and Hercules, our entrepreneur heroes stage a no-holds-barred bout. One question: how are they going to sell the closed-circuit TV rights? Perhaps someone on the production staff of Machiste Against Hercules in the Vale of Woe had previously seen the remarkably similar The Three Stooges Meet Hercules.
