Title Image

Autolycus accompanies Hercules to Thracia, where he encounters his ex-wife/ex-partner, Luscious Deluxe. Feeling guilty over once leaving her to take the wrap for a crime, Autolycus is desperate to make amends. Their relationship soon seems improve, just as the new bank is robbed. Autolycus is accused and he willing accepts the blame. However, Hercules suspects another culprit, but he has little time to prove it before Autolycus gets hanged.



Autolycus joined Hercules on his way to the First Bank of Greece and promised not to rob it. Once in town, they found Autolycus' ex-wife Luscious starring in a show at Club Nymph-O-Mania. The next day, the bank was robbed and Autolycus' grappling hook was found at the scene of the crime. Luscious was to blame, but Autolycus took the fall and went to jail. To save his friend, Hercules set a trap for Luscious, recovered the loot and freed Autolycus without having to implicate his ex-wife. The events rekindled Autolycus' and Luscious' feelings for each other.


No Cat Burglars intent on framing their ex-husbands were harmed during the production of this motion picture.
