He won the bodybuilding contests Mr. America in 1947, Mr. World in 1948, as well as Mr. Universe in 1950, before his impressive physique caught the eye of casting agents.
Following supporting appearances in films including “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” with Marilyn & Jane, and “Athena”, Reeves began his Italian film career with “Hercules”.
Along with Janette Scott, Steve Reeves is referenced in the cult musical “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”. When Dr. Frank N. Furter sings “if you want something visual, that’s not too abysmal, we could take in an old Steve Reeves movie”, it’s obvious who his inspiration was to create his very own muscleman Rocky.
Steve Reeves also appears on the Movie Map of America print.
