“We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie . . . “
— Dr. Frank-N-Furter — THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (1975)
Or TWO! We’re going to take Dr. Furter’s bit of advice when Heritage House presents a special HERCULES double-feature featuring two of the most popular films of the long-running sword ’n’ sandal / ‘peplum’ series:
In HERCULES (1958), STEVE REEVES makes his big-screen, muscle-bound debut, performing his many and dangerous Labors (The film’s original Italian title was THE LABORS OF HERCULES) and earns the love of the fair Iole, played by SYLVA KOSCINA, finally sailing with the Argonauts to recover the Golden Fleece. (Running time: 1 hour, 47 minutes)
In HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD (1961) directed by legendary Italian horror director MARIO BAVA (Black Sunday), Hercules (REG PARK) must journey to the very bowels of Hades itself to match wits with Re Lico (CHRISTOPHER LEE) in order to retrieve the magic stone that will free his love, Princess Deianira (LEONARA RUFFO), from the powers of darkness.
(Running time: 1 hour, 31 minutes)
Admission is free courtesy of the Chattanooga Department of Youth & Family Development & the Heritage House Arts & Civic Center.
*** Showtimes of the individual films are as follows:
- HERCULES: 2pm & 7pm
- HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD: 4pm & 9pm
*There are both matinee and evening showings for the back-to-back double feature.
