Colossus And The Amazon Queen

Going seriously kitsch here to get in some ancient, or first, Olympic action.  This is one of those 60's Italian mock-up that have the majority of the cast speaking in Italian with an English dub-over and a few English stars for the top billing for good measure, in this case Rod Taylor (!), speaking English on the set.  This is about a silly as they come, but good swords & sandals fun--lots of mock violence!!  Some of it, in fact, almost slapstickish.  It does feature at least two sports that are still summer Olympic events:  archery & wrestling and one that never was jousting (wait, did they even have jousting in the ancient world?? Don't think so...).
