Wow, this movie has to be seen to be believed! I can't believe that Arnold "Pretzie" Stang was overlooked AGAIN by the Academy! A finer piece of work I have not seen! Except perhaps by that guy in the bear suit. Now that was some great acting as well.

Of course, this is all from the perspective of being drunk, which is what you would have to be to like this movie! :P

Trivia

To help Arnold Schwarzenegger get the role, his agent said he had years of "stage" experience, implying theater. Schwarzenegger had only appeared on bodybuilding stages.


Quotes

Rod Nelson: Hey, Mister! Watch your talk!
Hercules: I can hear my talk. I cannot watch it.


Goofs

In a shot as Hercules and Helen ride in the carriage, the shadow of a cameraman is cast on them.


Alternate Versions

In the 1982 re-release, simply titled HERCULES (or HERCULES THE MOVIE), after the original opening narration, a new title card is spliced in. First, there is a few seconds of "laser" light-show effects. Then, an illustration of a flexing Arnold Schwarzenegger standing between two tall pedestals, with aura emanating from his hands. Above the image, "Arnold Schwarzenegger" in towering space-age font appears with a blue laser effect, and in the same font/effect, appears "Hercules." Then, at the bottom, in simple white font, appears "(C) MCMLXXXIII Filmpartners, Inc." "Starring Arnold Stang" and finally, "A Filmpartners Release". This is then followed by the first smoke-covered scene of Mount Olympus, where we hear Hercules asking "Why can't I go?" (where we left off). This new version's opening title can also be seen in the theatrical teaser/trailer (seen on Trimark's DVD version), which are apparently the only trailers in existence. And during the original opening credits, all titles from "RAF Industries, Inc. Presents" to "Starring Arnold Stang and Arnold Strong 'Mr. Universe'" were noticeably snipped.
