Films related to Hercules[edit]

The complete Italian Hercules series (in chronological order)

The films are listed below by their American release titles, and the titles in parentheses are the original Italian titles.

(Note* - A number of English-dubbed Italian films that featured the Hercules name in their title were never intended to be Hercules movies by their Italian creators. "Hercules, Prisoner of Evil" was actually a retitled Ursus film, "Hercules and the Black Pirate" and "Hercules and the Treasure of the Incas" were both retitled Samson movies, "Hercules and the Masked Rider" was actually a retitled Goliath movie, while the films "Hercules Against the Moon Men," "Hercules Against the Barbarians," "Hercules Against the Mongols" and "Hercules of the Desert" were all originally Maciste films. None of these films in their original Italian versions were connected to the Hercules character in any way. Likewise, most of the "Sons of Hercules" movies shown on American TV in the 1960s had nothing to do with Hercules in their original Italian incarnations.
