Photo of the Day

Steve Reeves, playing an ordinary mortal, is strong enough to pull chains out from the wall in THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII. One of the highlights of the many in this great film.

This scene could have been problematic as Steve is not playing Hercules or a superhero of sorts but since they showed him having difficulty and in pain when doing the pulling that the scene was believable, even if most people wouldn't be able to do something like this.

I like the tunic. Red was a good color for him.
