The Loves of Hercules (aka Amori di Ercole, Gli) is a 1960 movie starring Jayne Mansfield and husband Mickey Hargitay.

Mansfield plays Hercules' true love Deianeira. When a sorceress trying to vamp Hargitay as Hercules, she ends up transforming herself into Deianeira.

Mansfield received permission from her studio 20th Century Fox to film this movie in the early weeks of 1960. Filmed on location in Italy, this was not one of Mansfield's "loan out" films. She received a fee of $75,000 for starring in the movie. A hit in Italy, it was later broadcast as a movie of the week in 1966 on American television and has since gained a cult following. Mansfield was in the early stages of pregnancy with her third child when production started.
