When Gods walked with Men

There are two great genres of stories that portray what does not exist, Science Fiction and Fantasy. Science Fiction takes known scientific fact and stretches it beyond what is currently known . . . once in a while the Sci-Fi stories of imagination actually become fact years later. Fantasy, on the other hand, is imagination that leaves science behind and creates worlds never known, and never to be known. Fairy tales and classic mythology make up the tales of Fantasy, still popular today as all Harry Potter fans can attest. The beginnings of fantasy stories can be traced back to the ancient Greek stories of Zeus and other immortal gods who mingled with and created both fear and salvation for mortals below Mount Olympus. The 1960's was a golden age of fantasy motion pictures in Italy, falling in a genre of movies commonly known today as 'Sword and Sandal' stories. In this fantasy adventure Hercules, son of Zeus, is a loyal subject of King Androcles of Thebes. One day the gods promise to destroy the cities of Greece and only Hercules, along with his son Hylas, can save the world. Hercules and his son wind up in Atlantis, with the evil Queen of Atlantis Antinea, who means to kill her only daughter Ismene . . . Why, you ask, would the Queen of Atlantis want to kill her only daughter? Well, it seems that it was prophesied that if the Queen's daughter should outlive the Queen, Atlantis would be destroyed. Helping the Queen in her dastardly plans is Zenith, the Priest of Uranus. Once again the gods of the universe fight with each other and the mortal men and women of Greece will be caught in the middle. Will the power of Hercules, son of Zeus, be greater than the power of Zenith and the Queen of Atlantis? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
