Buck Rogers (1939)
Buster Crabbe: An Olympic swimmer that soon became Hollywood’s hottest hunk of beefcake. He faced jungle peril as Kaspa, The Lion Man in “King of The Jungle” and as the lord of the apes in “Tarzan, The Fearless”. Then as Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers he battled until his costumes were in shreds, and he was as near naked as the censors allowed, as he confronted Ming, The Merciless in many an episode of intergalactic captivity and torture.
