Movie-A-Day #21: Hercules (1958).
Happy birthday, Steve Reeves! He was the movie muscleman to end all movie musclemen, and his masterpiece was the first “Hercules” flick. Not only was it Reeves’ finest moment, but this Italian import also kick started the sword and sandal genre that was so popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It’s earned it’s special place in the B-movie heavens.
