The final minute is also missing maciste riding off in the desert. There are also other numerous cuts throughout less than a second in length likely caused by bad film that was edited out.
  • Notes: In general most of the cuts shorten basic establishing shots, however all gore is still included in the action sequences. Audio looks to have a higher treble than normal, also bass in the music is nonexistent.
