Upon his return from battle in the previous film, the great warrior Hercules learns that his lover, Daianara, has lost her senses. Acording of the oracle Medea, Dianara's only hope is the Stone of Forgetfulness which lies deep in the realm of Hades. Hercules, with two companions, Theseus and Telemachus, embarks on a dangerous quest for the stone, while he is unaware that Dianara's guardian, King Lico, is the one responsible for her condition and plots to have the girl for himself as his bride upon her revival.

Reg Park had to do all of his own stunts, as was common in "sword-and-sandal" movies. There were simply no Italian stuntmen available who were big enough to double for such massive, imposing body builders as Park and his colleagues.
Sir Christopher Lee's voice was dubbed by another actor for the English-language version.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was inspired to become a bodybuilder because of Reg Park's performance and physique in this film.
