Sansone. In the Bible Samson is a hugely strong Jewish warrior who fights the Philistines. As “Sansone” he appeared in at least fifteen Italian films between 1915 and 1965, possibly beginning with Sansone Contro I Filistei.
Sansone is an Italian version of Samson who has several Samson-esque adventures not described in the Bible. Descendants of the Biblical Samson fight pirates, meet Hercules, Maciste (I), and Ursus (in Ercole, Sansone, Maciste e Ursus: Gli Invincibili (1965)), go in search of the Treasure of the Incas during the late 19th century, team up with Sansonette, and fight evil while performing as a circus acrobat.
