Behind the Scenes

Director Pietro Francisci shows Steve Reeves how to grab Primo Carnera during the filming of HERCULES UNCHAINED.

Great photo. It's almost a study in various waistlines. Steve's arms are HUGE!

I've never seen Steve so pumped. Even his legs. I wish he had stayed that way when he was actually acting, but it was not to be.

There's apparently some serious retouching going on here, primarily in Primo's right shoulder/upper arm and Reeves' left arm. There is no way that shadow falls naturally across his arm, dissecting the forearm from the upper.

there is retouching across the image (including across the director); looks like someone erased some text but Steve's arms were that wide. It's the same thing in the film or other photos.

Not talking about the size, just the value differentials.
