Description by OLDIES.com:
Brad Harris and Alan Steel were mainstays in numerous Italian sword and sandal films of the sixties. Harris teamed up with director Gianfranco Parolini in many of these, as well as the Kommissar X series of spy films. Samson also features French pop singer and composer Serge Gainsbourg in the role of Warkalla.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 23 ratings.
Thoroughly enjoyable sword-&-sandal actioner starts off exciting and rarely loses the pace. Touches of humor lighten the mood. We've got some likable leads: Samson the strong man, Millstone the rebel played by Alan "Hercules" Steel, Jamine the maiden, and Mila the rightful queen. Unfortunately the villains aren't on par with the heroes: the usurper queen Romilda is controlled by her accomplice, the warlord Warkalla. Warkalla is a skinny little guy who just isn't convincing as the evil genius who leads a whole tribe of mercenaries.
Near the middle of the film we get a bit bogged down in captures, escapes, and running around, but there are plenty of dungeons, traps, wrestling matches, feats of strength, and reversals of fortune to entertain.
**Sounds like some of the music was reused from cheeseball classic "The Many Loves of Hercules" with Jayne Mansfield.
