Ulysses Against Hercules

A Feature film by Mario Caiano

Release in France : 08/08/1962

    Synopsis

    Zeus orders Hercules to take Ulysses, the dreaded king of Ithaca, prisoner and to hand him over to the Cyclops, who wants to make him his slave. The demi-god reluctantly accepts to leave his beloved Helen and to carry out his father's order. After a particularly fraught first encounter, Hercules binds Ulysses with ropes and transports him on a galley, which is shipwrecked near an unknown continent. Having survived, Ulysses and Hercules are captured by a tribe of men-birds, whose very beautiful but very cruel queen destines them to an awful fate. The two heroes decide to join forces to escape.
