The Original Uncut Joseph E. Levine Presentation! After rescuing the beautiful Iole (Sylvia Koscina, HERCULES UNCHAINED) from a runaway chariot, Hercules (Steve Reeves, DUEL OF THE TITANS, HERCULES UNCHAINED, LAST DAYS OF POMPEII) falls desperately in love and decides to win the heart of this fiery and independent woman. Iole, however, is the daughter of the new king, Pelias, recent successor to the throne after his brother’s highly suspicious death. In this time of uncertainty, a stranger arrives in Jolco claiming to be Jason, son of the slain king and rightful heir to Jolco. In order to prove himself he goes in search of the Golden Fleece - the symbol of rightful rule – with a crew of the most legendary figures of Greek mythology, including Hercules. After encountering many perils and evils along the way, Jason eventually retrieves the Golden Fleece and returns to Jolco to claim his rightful place as king… However Pelias has other plans. This is the movie that started it all, the very first screen adaptation of Hercules starring former Mr Universe, Steve Reeves, as the half-immortal son of Zeus.
