Goliath Against the Giants (Italian: Goliath contro i giganti) is a 1961 Italian film directed by Guido Malatesta.[2][3] It was Brad Harris's debut as a lead actor.



Goliath Against the Giants was released as Goliath contro I giganti in Italy on 14 May 1961.[1] It was released in the United States on 14 April 1963.[1]


A review in the Monthly Film Bulletin referred to the film as "dispiriting compendrium of strip-cartoon cliches whose rousingly and absurdly crowded climax fails to compensate for inexperienced direction, murky colour photography and shame-faced cutting." [4]
