O Dysseus, Where Art Thou?

A mashup by Robbie!

The Coen Brothers' Sword and Sandal Epic! As you may know, they took the plot of "O Brother" loosely from The Odyssey. I was watching a cheap double-feature of these and noticed how many of them feature women frolicking in streams or near waterfalls or seaside, like the sirens. I remembered the "sirens" from O Brother and just needed several hours to shoehorn some other scenes into place.

Audio track from the official trailer for "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Video clips from:
Hercules (1958)
Hercules Unchained (1959)
Fury of Hercules (1962)
Vulcan, Son of Jupiter (1962)
Hercules Against the Moon Men (1964)

Error that I'm too lazy to correct: Tim Blake Nelson's voice plays over shots of the actor "Rod Flash" (Real name: Iloosh Khoshabe) from Vulcan. But when it came to the spot where their names are shown, I used a clip of Brad Harris from Fury of Herc, because that shot of him posing in front of the steps is awesomely hilarious. Oh well. Hope you like it.
