Who wore it best?

Mark Forest in MACISTE VS THE MOLE MEN or Pietro Torrisi (below) in SEVEN REBEL GLADIATORS.

I would have loved to see them fight each other, actually. They look pretty evenly matched. Oh, well. As much as a Mark Forest fan as I am, I think it looks better on the other guy, because it fits his truck better. I see that they have laundered the "blood" stain that Mark's character had on his.

Both have outstanding physiques.With a physique like that Pietro Torrisi should have gotten better roles and more exposure during the 60's sword and sandal explosion. Only in the 80's he landed leading roles in those Conan-like flicks.

Pietro was jacked. Mark was amazing but Pietro was, imo, the best after Steve Reeves. It's a shame he never had a starring role during his early years but he was still in top form 20 years later in the 80s.
