YouTube Finds :: FINALLY!

Trapped in Public Domain purgatory, where films are chopped, cropped and washed out for all eternity, I never thought I'd ever get to see the likes of Pietro Francisi's Hercules in its original, widescreen format. But then word came that Image Entertainment was planning to release the film as its creators had intended on a no-frills DVD. And then, while trolling around YouTube, what do I find? The entire movie available online to watch for free through Image's Channel -- meaning it will hopefully be around for awhile. And so, please enjoy The Mightiest Saga of the World's Mightiest Man!

Other points of interest:
