Alan Steel: Hercules' Boyfriend
1. The Fury of Hercules (1962), aka The Fury of Samson and The Son of Samson, where he plays the buddy of Hercules/Samson (Brad Harris).
2. Hercules and the Masked Rider (1963), where he hangs out with the legendary 17th century lover Don Juan (Mimmo Palmera), and gets a cute gypsy boyfriend.
By the way, it's double-billed with Hercules against the Mongols (1963), where Mark Forest as Hercules/Maciste buddy-bonds with the bulgeworthy Ken Clark.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment from Joel and the Bots. The Queen of Samar agrees to help Moon Men conquer the world, and it's up to Maciste/Hercules to stop them. He rescues Prince Darix a few times, but then they both get girlfriends. Go figure.
When the peplum fad ended, Sergio tried his hand at spaghetti Westerns. In Un colpo da re, which means "Rim Shot" (1967), he plays someone named The Swede, who rams heads with Moulin Rouge.
In Sapevano solo uccidere ("I Only Knew How to Kill," 1971), playing Pedro, an evil Mexican outlaw who rams heads with Jeff Smart (Kirk Morris). He also did some dramas and comedies before retiring at the end of the 1970s.
