Recent Purchase: ATHENA

I purchased the VHS tape of ATHENA on eBay. There's a DVD available but it's one of those on-demand DVDs that you can't play on computers and/or DVD writers. Also I can't purchase it as Warner made it impossible for us folks in Canada to buy any of their titles. Really stupid stuff. So a VHS tape will have to do. I'm doing a profile on Edmund Purdom and this is one of the missing films in my collection. Oh, and someone called Steve Reeves is in too.

Great movie and yes, Steve is in it for sure and looks great and you can hear his "real" voice in it too. Really cute movie of the early 1950's era and Steve is playing...what else...a body builder...I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Hi Deborah well I can't wait to see it. It's one of those films that always eluded me even if I'm a big Steve Reeves and Ed Purdom. I also like musicals (don't tell anyone). It's not a sword & sandal film and I've never seen it on TV and Warner won't sell the expensive DVD here in Canada. So definitely looking forward to seeing it.
