Anyone else see the face in the rock face behind the actors starting around 8:53? Eyes, nose, beard.

The unfortunately mocked Queen Onfale was dying of leukemia when she made this film and a number of others in 1959 (and in fact died during the filming of a Brigitte Bardot movie "Sexy Girl"). I don't know if that explains her drawn on eyebrows, but she really had been quite a beauty (look up pics of Sylvia Lopez and judge for yourself).

Considering her work load I have to wonder if she decided to just keep going with her film career rather than undergo treatment for leukemia, which back in 1959 didn't have a high survival rate regardless.

Crow's voice for the Queen sounds like James from Pokémon.

I tried reading The hero with A Thousand Faces once but it was 500 pages of verbose, clinical crap. it was like reading an encyclopedia written by a guy who reads the thesaurus.

Well I don't wanna be God and some find that funny, but a God is just a king with a lot less money.

This movie isn't SO so bad, it's kinda like the version of 300 from the 60's. Bad acting but lots of cool Greek historical/mythological stuff.

Mike looks more like Burt Reynolds than Reeves with the dark hair and beard.

And I swear that the voiceover artist for Omphale, is the same woman who did the Chase & Sanborn Instant Coffee commercials in the 1960s!

The "actor" that plays Anteus is Primo Carnera, a famous US wrestler from the 1940s

No, Hercules was not known for his brains. Around 00:28:00, "Hardly any animals were harmed in the making of this film."

Fun fact: before the invention exchange, Tom Servo sings snippets of 3 different songs from the musical Hair: "Black Boys" (he substitutes red, of course), the scatting scooby dooby part is from "Good Morning, Starshine," and the third is "Hair." That's the one that gets stuck in my head every time I see this segment. I know all the words, so my brain just keeps going and going. "Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair, shinin' gleamin' steamin' flaxen waxen..."

Of course, it's bad writing. Why wouldn't it be? But Ulysses has the most awkward and protracted line. It bugs me every time. "But what are you doing with my pigeons here? A present! They were hers. Penelope got them at Samos." I can't think of a worse possible way to word that idea. I welcome you to give it a shot below. :)

This just reminds me of the old playground song from elementary school: "Hercules is a big fat phony. Hercules eats cheese and baloney. Fighting for his life with a plastic knife-- HERCULES!"

"Hercules Unchained"... wasn't that the name of that John Waters-themed rollercoaster?
