Photo(s) of the Day

Iloosh Khoshabe, dubbed the Iranian Hercules, has passed away a few days ago so in a tribute here are some photos from his PEPLUM films. Iloosh might not have been the greatest actor but he was unforgettable addition to the PEPLUM genre. What I liked about him is that he really looked Mediterranean. RIP!

Iloosh's first unforgettable appearance in VULCAN - SON OF JUPITER 

Iloosh as Samson in HERCULES, SAMSON & ULYSSES

Kirk Morris (Hercules) battles with Iloosh Khoshabe (Samson) in "Hercules vs Samson"

Mario Novelli and Iloosh Khoshabe (as Richard Lloyd!) are THE INVINCIBLE BROTHERS MACISTE. Photo below is also from the same film.

Iloosh Khoshabe has probably the most aliases than any other PEPLUM actor. 

He's known as:

Rod Flash
Rod Flash Ilush
Ilush Khoshabe
Richard Lloyd
