By the Gods!

Dan Vadis is put to the test for spectators in COLOSSUS OF THE ARENA (1962)

Vittorio Sanipoli plays the 'slave owner' who runs a show, in order to attract an audience. At 6'4", Dan Vadis was one of the tallest PEPLUM star. Only Peter Lupus was as tall. He wasn't a great actor by any means but as long as he flexed his muscles and punched everyone. He was a great in action scenes. Not so in dramatic scenes. Dan excelled in this film since he had very few dramatic scenes and nearly all action scenes centered around his physical abilities, which were impressive.
