this was the film steve hurt his shoulder and had to stop lifting heavy weights and lost lbs. believe or not he said in an interview he trained only one month out of the year when he was making movies in europe.thats why he looked bigger in some movies than others.his thickest was in goliath and the barbarians and lightest giant of marathon.a lot of copies of this film are made by GOOD TIMES VIDEO stay away from these copies they are BAD.good times copied all there DVD's and VHS in EP mode.again do not ever buy a GOOD TIMES just a warning if u buy a cope. and be weary of goliath and barbarians copies and others most are copied from some Italian print.i did get a great copy of thief of bagdad and morgan the pirate.
