Pietro Francisci

Pietro Francisci (9 September 1906 – 1977) was an Italian film director, best remembered for the film Hercules (1958) which inspired the sword and sandal boom of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Born in Rome, his career took a distinct turn for the worse after he directed the 1966 science-fiction film 2+5 Missione Hydra, released in the U.S. in 1977 as Star Pilot.
