Eye Candy: Gordon Scott in Hercules and the Princess of Troy

6'3" Gordon Scott was born in 1926 as Gordon Werschkul.  He was a physical education major at the University of Oregon before having varied careers in the military, as a fireman, cowboy and lifeguard.  He was spotted by Hollywood talent scouts and cast as Tarzan, a character he would play in six films from 1955-1960.  He married his Tarzan co-star, Vera Miles in 1956.  Following those films, he would go on to become a star in the sword and sandal genre, including Hercules and the Princess of Troy.
