Ulysses versus Hercules is a very good example of the Italian sword and sandal epics. Ulysses has offended the Gods and Hercules is sent to punish him. They encounter some crazed bird-men who are ruled by a beautiful queen. Then Ulysses is captured by a crazed Tyrant who rules over cave-men and its up to Hercules to rescue him. Near the end, Ulysses shows his honor and saves Hercules lover from certain death, even when he has the chance to escape and get back to his faithful Penelope. Impressed, Hercules implores his Father, Zeus, to forgive Ulysses.
