After joining the Forum 2 years ago, I posted 3 messages regarding this actor's (physical) suitablity as the hero of our saga. Enclosed are several stills from a 1955 MGM Biblical epic titled "The Prodigal." (He's the one in the loincloth and the wrist bracelts.) It was q vehicle for Lana Turner's undoubted charms, and starred British actor Edmund Purdom in the title role. GR was featured in an absolutely atrocious sequence 45 minutes before the finale. It has to be seen in order to be believed. Still,we're able to view him in approximate costume.Gives us an idea as to his qualifications.
Robotham was a bit player and stuntman for over 50 years. In 1988, he married German actress Karin Dor. We remember her as James Bond girl Helga Brandt in "You Only Live Twice". In that film, she displeased Donald Pleasence, and consequently was eaten by piranhas. I'd like to eat Karin Dor, too, but not the same way the piranhas did. (Get it?) George Robotham passed away on 2/1/07, from complications of Alzheimers. He was 85. Still had they been making Conan films in the 50s, he might have been a good candidate.
