The roar of the dragon guarding the Golden Fleece is actually Godzilla'a roar from Godzilla (1954) (U.S. title: "Godzilla, King of the Monsters"). Joseph E. Levine had acquired and released that film three years earlier.
During the scene in which Hercules uses chains against enemy soldiers, director Pietro Francisci became annoyed with Steve Reeves because he felt that Reeves wasn't swinging the chains hard enough to be convincing. Reeves claimed that he didn't want to swing the wooden chains (painted to look like they were metal) too hard because he didn't want to hurt the actors. In response, Francisci shouted back "If they don't get hurt, they don't get paid!"
Immense and immortal was the strength of Hercules, like the world and the gods to whom he belonged... Yet from letter men he learned one eternal truth - that even the greatest strength carries within it a measure of mortal weaknes...
Is this interesting?
