Hercules In New York: Video Case Cover
Hercules journeys to Earth from Mt. Olympus and gets mixed up with wrestling promoters and mobsters in this action comedy. Irresistible for the opportunity to watch a young Schwarzenegger in his movie debut.

Hercules In New York: Tony's Comments
Watch "Hercules in New York" and see Arnold Schwarzenegger, in his first starring role, like you have never seen him before, complete with dubbed voice, bad toga and a youthful smile. He even gets to take part in some of the cheesiest low-budget action sequences you are ever likely to see. "Hercules in New York" is a real oddity, it maybe goofy and even crazy at times but it somehow manages to exude a special charm. Arnold is credited as Arnold Strong because his surname was considered to be too way-out in 1970 and it is interesting to note that his co-star goes by the name of Arnold Stang. What a combination Strong and Stang! "Hercules In New York" is a comedy fantasy with a difference, featuring the Hercules character in a fish out of water setting, a first in movie history. The film takes the mightiest man on earth and drops him off onto a weather-beaten cargo ship headed for the world's greatest metropolis, New York City. This Herculean adventure of a strange man in a strange land is a fun ride and definitely not meant to be taken seriously. The Original release of "Hercules In New York" and most video copies, feature a soundtrack with someone dubbing Arnold's voice. Now with the modern miracle of DVD the new version features, for the first time ever, Arnold's original audio-track, complete with his trademark Austrian accent. "Hercules In New York" is known in some parts of the world as "Hercules The Movie" or "Hercules Goes Bananas. "Hercules in New York" is an unusual time capsule. It maybe peculiar in its own way but it is sure to put a smile on your face. A must see for Arnold fans.
