Trivia

Actor Antony Hamilton (Samson) was seriously ill with a virus, suffering from high fever and vomiting, while shooting the closing scenes with the weak Samson pushing down the temple pillars. While everyone on set kept complimenting him on his realistic acting, he had to explain that he was in actual fact seriously unwell and genuinely weak. See more »

Hot Samson, shorn or unshorn
31 January 2001 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

This movie heralded the "introduction" of bona fide Australian adonis Antony Hamilton, though he had done television and a low budget cult film, "Nocturna" previously. Hamilton in various stages of undress is the only reason to watch this film -- which is a good enough one -- though in the version I saw some of the body parts were vaselined out. The dialogue is 20th century American dreck; Victor Mature, the movie star Samson, gives an embarrassing performance eating a chicken leg; and Belinda Bauer is no Hedy Lamarr and let's face it, Hedy Lamarr was not the most exciting actress to hit the screen, even if she was one of the most beautiful. This movie concentrates on bodies making out in the pool, a near-naked Samson getting tossed into the lake by his buddies, love-making between nearly naked Samson and nearly naked Delilah and good looks at Samson's muscles throughout. As far as I'm concerned, this is a no miss, having nothing whatsoever to do with the story. It is depressing, however, to realize that Hamilton died at such a young age and, all kidding aside, that is a very sad loss.
