Fellow Svengoolie pals will be looking forward to his upcoming primetime premiere of a 1963 creature/sword-and-sandal adventure film from Italy.
Sven’s premiere of “Medusa against the Son of Hercules” will be part of his new Me-TV primetime slot during the network’s revamped “Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night” lineup. The film was directed by Alberto De Martino.
Who was in “Medusa against the Son of Hercules?”
The players who appeared in De Martino’s feature were Richard Harrison (as Perseo/Perseus), Anna Ranalli (as Andromeda), Arturo Dominici (as Acrisio), Leo Anchóriz (as Galenore), Antonio Molino Rojo (as Tarpete, credited as Molino Rojo in the film) and Roberto Camardiel (as Cefeo).
Two years before production began on “Medusa against the Son of Hercules,” Richard Harrison appeared in De Martino’s “The Invincible Gladiator” (1961). One of Harrison’s earliest feature film roles was in the 1958 film adaptation of the Richard Rodgers-Oscar Hammerstein musical, “South Pacific” (he played a co-pilot).
