Interesting and excellent thread!
thank you , i think these movies got a lot of members interested in lifting weights in the first place. i was like 7 or 8 when i saw steve reeves hercules for the first time .dam where did the time go. :o :o :o ;D ;D ;D ;D dan vadis was one of the taller guys in these movies. he ended up staying in the industry and actually had parts in john wayne, clint eastwood and than lou ferrigno movies. dan came to a tragic end.he actually wanted to bulk up to 270 lbs but i don't think he ever did. the story goes that dan v once locked up in an arm wrestling match against strngth legend chuck ahrens. as the story goes the table broke under the strain of the match and it was ahrens who refused to lock up again.??????

 ;Dpietro torrisi was in a number of these movies as an underling, i think if he would have been taller he might have got a shot at a lead.

only the stuff which was probably untrue in the old weider mags, there might be some routines in old ironman mags, i would believe those over the other mags any day.
