A super confident Mark Forest from THE LION OF THEBES

I played this film on PEPLUM TV this week. Did anyone watch it?

Plus, in this film he is a Spartan General, and everybody knows how tough Spartans are. Although, as long as the Greeks were at Troy, like a decade or more, he was probably just a teenager who was unusually well-built when he first arrived to get Helen back from Paris. Also, at the end when he has to fight a dude much heavier and much bigger than himself in order to save Helen from getting smashed by a big stone, they both fall in love with each other. Agamemnon is not going to be happy about that.

However, during the fight scenes there was a somewhat lighter-built stand-in who looked very fit and who was incredibly gifted athletically. He looked phenomenal. Do you have any idea who that gentleman was?

I have to work at night, so I never am home to watch Peplum TV. I still read your blog every night.
