Marvel at great feats of strength and seduction in the pulse-quickening sword-and-sandal epic, SON OF SAMSON. During the Persian rule over Egypt, the mighty Maciste (bodybuilder Mark Forest, Goliath and the Dragon) travels to the city of Tanis where the evil Queen Smedes (Folies Bergère dancer Chelo Alonso, Sheba and the Gladiator) rules with an iron fist and spreads misery across the land. Possessing legendary brawn and courage, Maciste leads a mass revolt against the queen and her tyrannical reign of terror. Director Carlo Campogalliani (Goliath and the Barbarians, Sword of the Conqueror) delivers the peplum genre goods in this breathtaking Color-and-Scope adventure, also known as Maciste in the Valley of the Kings.
