Peplum Pirates Double Bill

Alan Steel and Rosalba Neri star in a wonderfully daft attempt to combine Peplum and Pirate films Hercules and the Black Pirate (1964) available as a decent if unexciting print from Retromedia. More interesting is the grand scaled  Sandokan the Great (1963) starring Steve Reeves and directed by Umberto Lenzi. Filmed on location in Sri Lanka it is highly enjoyable and would make for a great Sunday matinee.
