What It’s About: The story of Hercules (Lou Ferrigno), as only Italian exploitation filmmakers desperately cashing in on Star Wars and Conan the Barbarian simultaneously could imagine it.
Why Watch it Today?: It’s the International Week of the Deaf, and lead Lou Ferigno’s childhood hearing loss drove him to be a success in the body building world, which in turn lead to his role on The Incredible Hulk, and finally, in some really shoddy Italian exploitation films.
Cool! I have two hard-of-hearing students but their class doesn’t meet this week. Never knew that about Ferrigno!
