Steve Reeves as Kimbar in KIMBAR OF THE JUNGLE (1949)

That's Virginia Hewitt. This short film (11 minutes or so) was a pilot of sorts for a TV series which wasn't picked up. This is Steve's earliest work in front of the camera. He made a super buff Tarzan  hero. He was 23 years old. I uploaded this to my PEPLUM TV channel if you want to see it (I don't link any videos to my blog anymore).

Amazing! Why we PeplumBlog!

At first glance I thought it was Gordon Scott, just watched his first Tarzan flick (TARZAN'S HIDDEN JUNGLE) on Sunday while snow fell

I watched the clip on YouTube, and was delighted. It's really a lost opportunity, but at the same time; not keeping Reeves in the US as a TV / movie star allowed him to become an international Peplum star.
