Photo of the Day

Hercules (Steve Reeves) struggles to set himself free from Anteus (Primo Carnera) in HERCULES UNCHAINED

I decided to post this photo, which I've never seen before, because it's so clear and sharp. A mass of muscles and limbs. Primo was a real wrestler and even though it's a small role it's quite memorable. He should have made more PEPs.

Look at Primo's forearms...they are as large, almost, as Reeves flexed biceps. I'd love to have seen a friendly fight between them off set, to see who really was the stronger of the two.

Nel 1959 Carnera aveva 53 anni ed aveva subito importante intervento chirurgico; Reeves aveva 23 anni; due campioni nei rispettivi ruoli. Purtuttavia, Carnera era stato anche lottatore di professione.
