In 15th-century Navarre the king dies, and his two nieces must struggle for power. One is good (Spina), the other evil (Orfei). The only way to find out the chosen successor is to get hold of a treasure chest that carries the king's will, which states his heir. Orfei is ambitious and fears

the will holds her rival's name. She hires Steel to bring the chest to her so she can change the name and take the throne. Meanwhile Spina hires Brice, a great swordsman, on the advice of a poet she loves. Steel and Brice go through numerous conflicts before Steel finally gets the chest and takes

it to Orfei. He stops short of giving it to her though, realizing that Spina should be the ruler. He and Brice team up after reconciling differences and the two fight off Serato, who is Orfei's lover and the leader of the palace guards. Spina becomes queen and discovers that the masked swordsman

is also her poet. This is typical beefcake action, full of gleaming pectorals and swashbuckling galore. It liberally mixes historical legends, eras, and heroes. Steel was called "Samson" in dubbed American prints, but was "Maciste" in the Italian version. Production values are okay for what this

is, though the color processing is not up to par. At some points blonde-haired Spina looks like a victim of jaundice.
