David the Gladiator

So the image I posted yesterday is a scan from this magazine. Jim, Steven, Pasquale at Facebook and others who've emailed me confirmed it's Dave Draper. He was David the Gladiator for a TV show that featured PEPLUM films and he was the host. It was broadcast in the early 1960s in L.A..

Even if he never was a Sword & Sandal star Dave did appear in a few films, including the wacky LORD LOVE A DUCK.

Great cover!!

"Are Muscle Men Undersexed?"
Aw...the poor babies.

Any excuse to get the word "sex" on the cover. Another example of the advertising mantra: "Sex sells". lol
