An interesting book on Steve Reeves' 17 films has just been published. It contains quite a bit of info on Leone's "Last Days of Pompeii", Reeves take on working with Sergio, and how Reeves turned down the lead role in  "AFD". It's available from www.stevereeves.com. The 8 x 10 book is 275 pages and over 400 photos.

Glad to help. That was Gordon Scott (not Reeves) who played Tarzan. The book is under the "Products" section of www.stevereeves.com

You know this got me thinking, remember the story of how Sergio wanted Clint to wear the pancho to make him look broader? Maybe he had a picture of Steve Reeves in mind.

You know talk about luck, just think if it was Steve Reeves as the Man With No Name, do you think the magic would have worked? Do you think we would have been able to not see Hercules in a poncho, might it not have made a big enough obstacle to make it all ridiculous.

Just think if it wasn't a hit it would have been the only dollars film.

Now the mind starts to boggle, if Steve had been the MWNN, there might not even have been a poncho. Maybe Steve would have rode into San Miguel wearing just the sheepskin vest the better to show off his pecs.
Maybe when the Baxter boys shoot at his mule Steve grabs the overhead beam and squeezing his legs together lifts the mules feet off the ground.....

STEVE: "I don't like having to lift my mule. My mule gets nervous when I have to lift him. Now tell my mule your sorry"

Or later in the warehouse Steve as Joe would simply have tossed the whiskey barrel rather than roll it.

It might have been Hercules out west.
