Ercole contro Moloch (1963)

Post by PeplumParadise » 07/10/2022, 14:22

HERCULES V MOLOCH IT HD2.jpg
Director

Giorgio Ferroni

Selected production credits
Arrigo Peri …. Production assistant

Storyline

Mycenae is ruled over by Queen Demeter, whose deformed son masquerades as their god, Moloch, taking pleasure in torturing virgins for his amusement. Deposed Prince Glauco, who confusingly also goes by the name "Hercules", is taken prisoner and leads a rebellion.

Cast

Note
This film re-uses extensive footage from Ferroni's Le baccanti (1961) with actors Alessandra Panaro, Nerio Bernardi and Piero Pastore playing similar roles so their costumes can be matched and a number of other actors only appearing here in re-used footage. There is further re-used footage taken from La guerra di Troia (1961), also directed by Ferroni, in which Arturo Dominici wears the same costume as here.

Unidentified actors

Uncredited actors listed by other sources, but not identified
  • Genevieve Grad - IMDb as Parsifae. She does not appear and there is no such role.
  • Mario Novelli. Curiously listed in the original German programme as playing Moloch, however the body shape and body hair do not match with Novelli at all (and does match with Marascalchi, who is credited). Of course, since you never see his face, it could always be possible that both actors played him in different scenes, or that Marascalchi replaced Novelli.

I usually have no problems identifying credited Gaetano Scala, but I'm struggling here. I think he has to be Penthius's lieutenant, in the middle in 13 with a false beard and otherwise only seen in a helmet, but he certainly looks quite different here to how he normally looks.

As for credited Mario Lodolini the image in his topic dates from 14 years before this film, but, allowing for ageing, I don't see any obvious matches among the prominently featured unidentified actors
Lodolini Mario.jpg

Possibly he could be the actor in the centre here, though it would be odd for him to be credited when all the actors with him are not. On the right here looks like Sergio Sagnotti or one of his lookalikes.
