"I've always liked this film a great deal. The plot of Samson helping a far Eastern country had the right mix of exotic for my tastes. Over the years I've picked up several different copies of this film looking for the best possible presentation. When Retromedia announced that that they were going to put out a widescreen version of the film I was excited. When the film came out I delayed in picking it up a little bit, but I eventually did despite being warned by a friend and by the Website DVD Drive-in that the transfer left a lot ot be desired. Actually other than than being a widescreen version of the film this edition leaves everything to be desired. First off it it is at least 15 minutes too short running some 66 minutes. Worse still is the print itself which is as scratchy and as faded as one can get. Portions of the film seem to have lost all their color and have shifted to red. Its awful. This is possibly the worst edition of any film from Retromedia. I know its the worst version of this film out there since I have about four or five different dvd releases, none are as worn and faded as this one. I can not recommend this version of the film to anyone. If you want to see this really good film do try to get one of the other editions- any of the other editions.
If you want a full (well missing a minute or 2) version of Seven Miracles see Ultimate Hero DVD by vintage. Its the full version letterboxed (plus Hercules Unchained in a beautiful print and Giant of Marathon in a good print)"
