Eye Candy: Alan Steel in Hercules and the Masked Rider
Alan Steel was the stage name of Sergio Ciani. He was one of the few Italian actors to play Hercules in the sword and sandal films of the early 60s. He actually began his career working as a body double for Steve Reeves in some of his films. In Hercules and the Masked Rider, Steel played a gypsy named Paco (who became Hercules in the American version).
