Athens & Sparta vs the King of Persia

There is a big fight ahead, and Athens needs the help of its enemy and rival to survive . . . Imagine that the Boston Red Sox are going to war, and the only way that they can win is to ask for help from the New York Yankees! . . . Yikes! . . . The King of Persia is about to attack Athens, and the fate of Greece depends on one man, and one man alone. Phillipides, played by Mr. Universe Steve Reeves is the Giant of Marathon - the winner of the first Olympics who defeated the Spartans . . . Now he must convince the mighty Spartans to join forces with the fighters from Athens . . . But let's back up just a bit . . . I mustn't forget to tell you about the women involved . . . yes, in most wars in real life, and always in movies, there must be a couple of beautiful women involved, in addition to the hero and the bad guy. Shortly after winning the first Olympics Phillipides meets a gorgeous young girl playing ball with her friends. He is immediately in love with the young maiden, but she will not even tell him her name. Later that day the traitor who is in league with the King of Persia decides that he will convince Phillipides to help him betray Greece . . . every man has his price . . . the traitor orders his mistress to seduce Phillipides and bring him into her control, and thus into the control of the traitor . . . But Phillipides has eyes only for the young maiden that he spotted earlier in the day . . . Unfortunately the young maiden has been promised since birth to another man . . . the traitor! So our hero has the mighty armies of Persia to fight, and the traitor, who has kidnapped the young maiden and is trying to take her to Persia with him as he tries to help the Persians defeat and conquer Athens and all of Greece. Gals, I gotta tell ya, there aren't many men who can pull of a fight scene in a war movie wearing only a giant white diaper-like loin-cloth, but Steve Reeves does it with panache . . . Maybe that is why he was the highest paid actor in Europe when he made 'sword and sandal' movies like this one. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the war.
