Hercules and the Captive Women

(1961 – Italy/France – aka Ercole alla Conquista di Atlantide) dir: Vittorio Cottafavi; w/ Reg Park, Fay Spain.
Hercules and his faithful midget go to Atlantis – and pull the plug. They certainly dressed this one up with a lot of color and spectacle, but they obviously thought plot was an unnecessary complication. Instead, we get a string of wacky notions… evil queen (rowr), captive woman (only one, but she keeps getting captured, so perhaps she counts as more), attack of the clones, and of course, volcano! Fun enough for fans of the genre, just be sure to check your brains at the door.
