Tragic Stars : Emimmo Salvi

Emimmo Salvi signing Steve Reeves for GOLIATH & THE BARBARIANS

Producer, writer and director Emimmo Salvi was the first to sign Steve Reeves after the success. From then on, Emimmo made a dozen or so PEPLUM films, including THE GIANT OF METROPOLIS and THE SEVEN REVENGES. He was producing a film called ZEUS (see here) when he killed himself with a gun (that was never found!?!) after he learned he was diabetic. His input to the PEPLUM genre is important just by signing Steve to a lucrative contract.
