A vagabond Viking adventurer and a Moor both compete to find "The Mother of All Voices", a legendary golden bell near the Pillars of Hercules.
Film known for a torture contraption called the "Mare of Steel" depicted as a huge curved blade as large as a Trojan Horse, which unlucky prisoners were forced to climb and ride down on their exposed bellies, hands tied, splaying them open at its base and impaling them on a bed of two foot steel spikes.
Arab at bazaar:
How can one believe a man with eyes as pale as yours?
Ten times the number of men shown could not lift the bell of gold; nor could the small raft shown float it.
The UK cinema version was cut for violence and the 1988 video release lost a further 13 secs to edit shots of horse-falls.
