From 1958. From Wikipedia: Hercules (Italian title: Le Fatiche di Ercole; "The Labors of Hercules") is a 1958 Italian fantasy film, starring bodybuilder Steve Reeves as Hercules. American producer Joseph E. Levine acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the film and thanks in part to his huge promotional campaign, the film became a major box-office hit which inspired dozens of Italian sword and sandal genre films in the late 1950s and early 1960s. A sequel, Hercules Unchained (Ercole e la Regina di Lidia), also starring Reeves, was made by the creators of the original film.
