This is a 27" x 39" Lebanese poster for a 1960 rerelease of the 1959
Bruno Vailati film Hercules Unchained based on a haphazard
composite of stories by Pietro Francisci, Sophocles and Aeschylus with
screenplay by Ennio De Concini and Pietro Francisci and starring Steve
Reeves as Hercules and Gabriele Antonini as Ulysses. Plot summary:
Hercules intervenes in a quarrel between the two brothers Eteocles
[Sergio Fantoni] and Polynices [Mimmo Palmara] over who will rule
Thebes. During this effort he drinks from a magic spring and is
hypnotized by a harem girl as she dances the Dance of Shiva. The
bewitched waters of the spring cause him to lose his memory and be
captured by the Lydian Queen Omphale [Sylvia Lopez], who is in the
habit of turning her male captives into statues after she tires of
them. Omphale makes Hercules her love slave, but everyone except
Hercules, who has forgotten his own name, knows his days are numbered.
Young Ulysses tries to help Hercules recover his memory while Iole
[Sylva Koscina], the wife of Hercules, finds herself in mortal danger
at the hands of Eteocles, who plans to throw her to the wild beasts in
his arena for entertainment. After recovering his memory and killing
three tigers Hercules is able to rescue his wife; he then helps the
army of Thebes repel mercenaries hired by Polynices. The two brothers
kill each other when they fight for the throne, after which the high
priest Creon [Carlo D'Angelo] is made ruler by popular acclaim.
