Stand-In


A behind-the-scenes example of a stand-in during the shooting of THIEF OF BAGHDAD: Giovanni Cianfriglia and Edy Vessel sit still while they set up the shot. The buff Giovanni is standing-in for Steve Reeves while Edy has no stand-in. Below is how the shot looks like in the final film. Giovanni was Steve's "official" body double/stuntman for many films.

Wow, imagine the pressure of being Steve Reeves' "body double"!! Still Giovanni does an admirable job.
