Veteran televiewers know all too well that the inclusion of "Son of Hercules" in a film's title does not necessarily indicate that you'll be seeing a Son of Hercules. Back in 1963 or thereabouts, a package of sword-and-sandal epics were bundled together for American TV syndication under the umbrella title Sons of Hercules (remember the theme music?) One of these was issued to local TV outlets as Venus Against the Son of Hercules; it starred Roger Browne, the muscular protagonist of such previous actioners as Ten Gladiators. Browne uses his considerable pectoral skills to thwart the world-conquering plans of the beautiful-but-deadly Venus, who up until this film wasn't such a bad sort. Co-starring is one Jackie Lane, a curvaceous starlet who later appeared on American television as Jacqueline Lane.
