HERCULES THE INVINCIBLE  (1964): 

Ercole salva Teica, la figlia del re, dalle fauci di un leone e se ne innamora perdutamente. Il padre per concederla in sposa chiede ad Ercole di uccidere un feroce Drago che terrorizza il suo popolo.  Ercole riesce nell'impresa ma quando torna per richiedere la ricompense trova la città distrutta e scopre che il re è stato ucciso da Kabaol, capo del popolo dei Demios, che ha rapito anche la sua amata.  Ercole parte per liberarla e riesce nel suo intento, vendicando anche la morte del re. 

Hercules saves a woman named Telca from a lion and arrives in triumph in her village. Telca's father, King Tedaeo, offers Hercules Telca's hand in marriage, if he brings back the tooth of a dragon. Hercules seeks help from a witch, who gives him a spear that will kill the dragon but wants the same tooth as her reward. As Hercules has already promised the tooth to King Tedaeo, the witch warns him that the magic of the tooth will only work once. In Hercules' absence Telca's village has been pillaged with all the survivors, save Babar, taken prisoner by the Demulus, a tribe that lives inside a mountain and eats the hearts of their prisoners.

 

THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE AHMED  (1926): 

An African magician conjures up a flying horse, which he shows to the Caliph. When the magician refuses to sell it for any amount of gold, the Caliph offers any treasure he has to get it. The magician chooses Dinarsade, the Caliph's daughter, to her great distress. Prince Achmed, Dinarsade's brother, objects, but the magician persuades him to try out the horse. It carries the prince away, higher and higher into the sky, as he does not know how to control it. The Caliph has the magician imprisoned.  When Achmed discovers how to make the horse descend, he finds himself in a strange foreign land. He is greeted by a bevy of attractive women. When they begin fighting for his attention, he flies away to a lake. There, he watches as Peri Banu, the beautiful ruler of the land of Wak Wak, arrives with her attendants to bathe. When they spot him, they all fly away, except for Peri Banu, for Achmed has her magical flying feather costume.
