    Anyone know who this is? Or do I have to wait for the end of the movie?

    I haven't seen that film in decades and doubt I could sit through it today. Not my taste. You'll probably have to wait until the end of the movie and slow-mo through the credits. But check out if it was Steve Wiland. He was famous at FOX as a choreographer and sometime character actor who was known as "Horse" among his friends. His nickname had nothing to do with appearing in westerns. :smile:

    It wasn't edited out a 1958 film because such things weren't even on the radar then. People simply did not look at a man's crotch at all. It's only with the increasing sexualisation of popular media in the decades since then, first for women and later also for men, that such things have even become noticeable.

    A possible reason his crotch scenes stayed in the movie, it was sold to theaters on a prepaid basis,( not sent out to 1000's on movie house's as is done today) the musical scenes with the odd color tint we never intened to be that dark, but that was never altered, as the movie was rushed out, possibly why we are left with all these great crotch shots... the pic is from a string of spy movies he made in europe in the 60's and 70's

    Excuse me, but I think that's baloney. Of course women and gay men looked at a man's big basket in the late 50's. I think it's a complete myth that the 1950's was a repressed decade. Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, et al...

    I'm not saying that it's repressed. Repressed implies an active recognition of something that you want to repress. I'm saying it never even occurred to them to worry about it.

    I'm sorry. I mean this with the utmost respect. But I'm not following you. Worry about what?

    VPLs were not edited from movies and television in 1958 because until the 1980s a APL was a common thing. That's the way men dressed back then and it was the norm and was accepted. Most men wore boxer shorts and with the tighter fitting trousers and jeans, if you were hung, it showed.

    VPLs were considered perfectly normal, so were speedos, tight jeans etc. There was nothing wrong with it showing.

    The victorian era started in the early 1990s (or late 1980s). And with the advent of electronic editing, it became much easier to edit out or smooth out any VPL to please the born again christians who are as prude as devout muslims and are offended by the human body and woudl want it to be legally illagal to show any skin or shape of genitals.

    Ken Clark also starred in one of the greatest camp horror films of the 50's "Attack of the Giant Leeches" there is plenty of opportunity for him to display his fabulous hairy torso and fully packed bathing suit in this camp classic.:tongue:

    Along with his great looks, VPL and a host of other attributes, the boy had a great bass voice as well. I have a theory about bass singers, they have huge low hanging bull balls. I'm just sayin'
