If you're still interested in the origin of the Fake Hercules Swords, check out Hartman Krug's Sword and Sandals Movie Poster video posted on our dedicated Facebook group. I don't know at what rate they were making these Hercules movies in the 1950's and 1960's, but if Krug's compilation is any indication, the arms-above-head pose was what you wanted on your poster. The lion skin, present on the Fake Hercules Swords, is absent from the posters. It is present on the Hercules depicted in the Campana relief, however. Feel free to join the group if you'd like up-to-the minute, open information about all the publicly-known Fake Hercules Swords in existence.
