Arrivano i Titani (1961)

Arrivano i Titani (1961, ITA/FRA) C-115m. SCOPE ** D: Ducio Tessari. Starring Pedro Armendáriz, Giuliano Gemma, Antonella Lualdi, Serge Nubret, Jacqueline Sassard, Fernando Rey. Peplum epic, a bit better than your usual Italian one. Gemma plays one of the Titans, trapped in the underworld, who is sent up to Earth to fetch evil ruler Armendáriz. The despot's daughter Sassard has never seen a man before, since he has received a warning by an oracle. Sword-and-sandal fare is like a tour through Greek mythology and has a funny performance by Gemma. Sassard is lovely. Overlength and general silliness hem above-average efforts. English titles: MY SON, THE HERO, SONS OF THUNDER, and THE TITANS.
