Photo of the Day

Briggs (Richard Egan), Gilly (Skelton Knaggs) and Maynard (Keith Andes) are up to something in BLACKBEARD THE PIRATE

Richard Egan made this before (slowly) hitting it big 2 years later with DEMETRIUS & THE GLADIATORS and later on in THE 300 SPARTANS. It's always fun to watch an actor in films before they hit the big times. I like Richard. He never became a superstar or a household name and many find him stiff but I thought he was often underused and he was *perfect* as a gladiator in DEMETRIUS.
