Ursus (also known as Mighty Ursus) is a 1961 Italian peplum film directed by Carlo Campogalliani. The film was later adapted for the American television film package, The Sons of Hercules, where it was retitled "Ursus, Son of Hercules". Filmed in Madrid in 1960 and released in several countries from 1961-1963, this movie stars bodybuilder Ed Fury as the legendary Ursus in a sword-and-sandal adventure. [1] [2]
