Description by OLDIES.com:

A monstrous prehistoric beast lurks deep within a cave. It's one of many fearsome creatures, including flying bat-men and a fire-breathing three-headed monster, that dwell in a hellish underground labyrinth. The evil tyrant King Eurystheus plans on using this demon-spawn to destroy Goliath, the immortal warrior. The King has stolen a precious gem and hidden it in the cave, hoping to lure Goliath to his doom. When Goliath escapes unharmed, Eurystheus abducts the beautiful princess and chains her up in the dragon's lair. Goliath now must confront the gigantic beast in order to save the woman he loves.

The success of Hercules (1957), with Steve Reeves, paved the way for a long succession of sword and sandal epics depicting the adventures of legendary heroes. Most, like Goliath And The Dragon (advertised as "The mightiest adventure of them all!"), were Italian imports, dubbed and re-titled for the U.S. market. American stars (such as Broderick Crawford) were often brought in to increase the box-office appeal. Stop-motion animator Jim Danforth (When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth) filmed the special effects scenes of the dragon.

Product Description:

Goliath (Mark Forest), legendary strongman, finds everything's gone to pot when he returns from battling some seriously strange monsters. First of all, his brother has fallen in love with the King's girlfriend, and the murderous King sentences him to death in return. Our hero has even bigger troubles, though, as he must save his wife from the grips of the wicked ruler and his kidnapping centaurs.
