Hercules Returns DVD
Notify me when back in stock
Unhappy and frustrated working for Australia's largest cinema chain, film buff Brad McBain (David Argue) decides to go it alone and set-up his own old-style cinema, the revamped Picture Palace, featuring classic old films.
The Palace will open with a glitzy Gala Charity Night, featuring the mini epic "Hercules, Samson, Machismo and Ursus are Invincible". But ex-employer, the Kent Corporation's egotistical boss, Sir Michael Kent, (Michael Carman) will stop at nothing to ruin McBain's plans, switching the Italian epic with a non-subtitled version.
Not to be thwarted, McBain, his weird projectionist - Sprocket, (Bruce Spence) and forceful publicist - Lisa, (Mary Coustas) are forced to come up with new dialogue, sound effects and story line, improvised from the projection booth. The hilarious improvisation has Hercules as a cabaret artist, who is forced to take on the now wimpy, Samson. His true love Labia, though, seems more entangled with Testiculi.
Hearing the audience in an uproar of approval, ex-boss Kent is even more determined to destroy Brad and his side-kicks. The action spills out of the projection booth, into the cinema and then into the foyer for the final big showdown.
