History of Sword & Sandal Abs

Article on the Peplum genre and the ever ubiquitous abs of the heroes made after the release of Prince of Persia this past summer. It's interesting but it's full of mistakes and oversights, like not including Steve Reeves in the slideshow. It also claims Spartacus & the Ten Gladiators was made because of Stanley Kubrick's film but forgot to mention that there was a previous version made in Italy 10 years prior to the more famous one.
