OUR FAVOURITE EPIC HEROES

My Weekly Special - - | Celebrity -

We’ll never for­get Kirk Dou­glas in Spar­ta­cus. “Spar­ta­cus in­spired me to be re­ally fit,” Kirk said. “You have to be su­per­fit and live and love the par t.”

Vic­tor Ma­ture was an­other epic with his fight­ing physique and know­ing smile in The Robe, Demetrius and the Glad­i­a­tors and Sam­son & Delilah.

“I just knew how to smile in all the right paces but of­ten it looked like a smile when I had ac­tu­ally twisted my an­kle,” he ad­mit­ted.

Yul Bryn­ner, Robert Tay­lor, Richard Bur ton, Stephen Boys, An­thony Quinn were all hear t-throbs of the epics.

But the last word has to be from

John Wayne – in full Texan drawl but play­ing a Ro­man guard – “Shoorly this man wuz the son of gud”… He didn’t have the legs for it ei­ther!
