Mythology’s greatest hero and The Trojan War come to life in The Hercules Collection, six classic movies from the ‘sword and sandal’ genre. First brought to the screen by bodybuilder Steve Reeves, the character of Hercules has enjoyed one of the most enduring careers in motion pictures, spanning over fifty years and counting. Exploring the rich variety the genre has to offer, this set packs in all the sword-slinging, monster-battling action you expect from the world’s strongest demigod, as well as two epics inspired by the ancient world’s most famous conflict.

Found this lovely gem about Jayne’s visit to Buffalo in July 1964. Full article below:
“My FAVorite place of all because I fell comPLETEly in love with Buffalo last year. I LOVE it. It’s a WONderful place.”
Meeting a sex symbol
I was 18. My first job at the fair was at the Transportation and Travel Pavilion, where I saw many actors and other famous people, such as the shah of Iran, Eddie Albert and Dagmar.
The most memorable moment came when I was picked to escort Jayne Mansfield to do a photo shoot on the roof of a pavilion shaped like the moon, a greenish-colored dome with craters on it. She was holding two small dogs as she was walking. What does an 18-year-old say to a sex goddess? The only thing that came to mind was, “What kind of dogs are they?” She answered, “Italian greyhounds.”

Mickey Hargitay will always be fondly remembered by all Jayne-fans as her most devoted husband. He never stopped loving her. But there was so much more to him than just being “the 2nd Mr. Mansfield”. Mickey Hargitay had quite an interesting life.
Born and raised in Hungary, Hargitay performed in an acrobatic act with his brothers. He also played soccer and became a champion speed skater. Mickey was an underground fighter during World War II. After the war he emigrated to the United States. He found jobs working as a plumber and carpenter.
Mae West hired him to be one of the musclemen in her stage show: “The Mae West Revue”. While performing with Mae West at the Latin quarter, Mickey Hargitay met Jayne Mansfeld.
He is remembered by fans of the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genre for his starring roles in The Loves of Hercules (1960), Bloody Pit of Horror (1965), Lady Frankenstein (1971), Delirium (1972), and Rites, Black Magic and Secret Orgies in the Fourteenth Century (1973).
