Damnit that's been shown in the UK every now and again and i've always missed it.Never realised it was Italian. :-[

I'll make sure i catch it next time.

The one I have is the 115 minute version, but it's fullscreen from reels. There's a gorgeous widescreen version out there so maybe the one that plays on tv by your way is the wide version. Incidentally, some of the sets in THE MONGOLS turned up in later peplum/strongman movies. The same director also guided Steve Reeves in MORGAN THE PIRATE (also with Chelo Alonso).

I do remember catching a bit of Palance while flicking channels(it had already started unfortunately) and in appearance and charactrer he fits the part brilliantly.

BTW excellent article and i'm intending to look up some of these. O0

Thanks, Banjo. The genre obviously has its fans. Whenever I check my sitemeter, the sword & sandal articles and movie reviews are always listed. Some more than others.

A little help: where can these be found (preferably with English subs, as my Italian knowledge is pretty limited, just what I picked up from opera)? I'm especially looking for MASSACRE IN THE BLACK FOREST, because it seems to be the only non-documentary adaptation about the Teutoburg Forest. (Why the makers confused it with the Black Forest is a mystery, though.)
