What, if any, Hercules features made it onto super 8?

I'm bettint aht there were assorted digests here and there, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were assorted Italian super 8 features of Hercules, as Italians are all over those "Sword/scorcery/toga" sagas.

(note: that's not a slam on Italians, it's just probably a safe bet)

Therefore, does anybody know, worldwide, what Hercules features were put out on super8?

Osi I was going to buy a 16mm print full feature of The Last Days of Pompeii with Steve Reeves. It was a forum member who was selling it. But the deal never went through. I have been trying to find a Reeves movie , Hercules , Bagdad, or any flick in any format ?  -

Hi Osi
Piccolo Film in Germany released in the late seventies a good 8mm feet version of "Herkules erobert Atlantis" from 1961.Its a good film in rather good colors and it was a two-parter. I even have the 35 mm Trailer in CS and technicolor. What a shame,that Technicolor dont came out on Super 8mm. But thanks to 35mm we run sometimes a technicolor film and trailers in my filmclub .
Greetings from germany

Always enjoyed a good sword and sandal epic, especially if it had monsters.

"Herkules erobert Atlantis" aka Hercules and the Captive Women is available in what looks a like a decent quality print at the Super8warehouse.
Hercules and the Captive Women

Cheers
Terry

The original Hercules with Steve Reeves made it onto S/8 in a
superbly edited 400' edition from Derann in the mid 70's.Odd
copies of the full feature crop up in std 8mm from time to time.
I have no doubt there will be copies in Italy, as it was a popular
film that helped the Italian film industry no end.
