Hercules against the Mongols (1963, Color):
The death of tyrant Genghis Khan in 1227 AD puts his sprawling empire into the hands of his three violent sons - Sayan, Susdol and Kin Khan. When they invade the peaceful city of Tuleda and imprison the beautiful Princess Bianca, mighty Hercules comes to the rescue. After competing in a tournament of strength against the Khan brothers for the right to barter for Bianca's freedom, Hercules voluntarily surrenders himself into slavery. While the brothers take turns tormenting the hero and conspiring against each other, an alliance of Western armies advance on their position. Seriously outnumbered by the Asian hordes, the approaching forces don't stand a chance unless Hercules can escape to join them in their fight against the Mongol terror.
Starring Mark Forest, Ken Clark, Jose Greci; Directed by Domenico Paolella.

When the soldier has the courage to stand up to the mighty Hercules, he earns some respect, and the two team up to track down the soldier's missing lover.
