War and the Prisoner of Love
This movie is billed as a war story . . . A great battle between Russia and the rebel tribes that they want to rule on the other side of the Black Mountains. . . . But trust me . . . . This story is about something more dastardly than war . . . . More deadly than battle . . . More treacherous than armies fighting to the death . . . . This story is about three men of power and might . . . . And only two beautiful women, who both want the same man. As you might guess, this will be a story much more fascinating than nations at war . . . . and much deadlier!
Pioneering body builder Steve Reeves is the white warrior, the leader of a mountain tribe who always wears white fur garments, and is the bravest and mightiest fighter in the land. There is another tribe leader that always wears red who is jealous of the white warrior and will do anything to get rid of him and claim the beautiful girl that is preparing to wed the white warrior.
After successfully winning a battle for a mountain fortress, the white warrior is ready to marry his beautiful Sultanet, but before the wedding can happen Russian soldiers shoot the white warrior and take him to the Russian outpost that is controlled by the Russian prince who is leading the fight against the mountain tribesmen.
This Russian soldier just happens to be married to the most beautiful lady in the movie, Princess Maria, played by Scilla Gabel. Princess Maria takes one look at the handsome white warrior being held prisoner, and instantly wants him for her own.
Meanwhile back at the mountain tribes, the fellow who always wears red will find a way to force the beautiful Sultanet, played by Giorgia Moll, to become his wife instead of waiting for the white warrior who has been captured by the Russians. Sheesh, this body building stuff sure makes Steve Reeves irresistible to all the pretty girls . . . . Do ya think that it is too late for me to start lifting weights? Yeah, you are probably right. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.

The question that I am asked most often is whether these movies are really public domain, or am I sharing movies that are still copyrighted and owned by movie studios and independent producers. Some folk believe that I am clever enough to share movies still owned by studios and independent producers without them knowing, but that would not be 'clever' . . . . merely 'stupid.' The first month that I started this web site I uploaded the stack of movies that I had on hand that I believed were public domain. Within days, when only a handful of visitors found my site, a movie studio contacted me and let me know that a couple of their copyrighted movies were among my uploads. I quickly apologized and removed them, and I started learning how to research copyright office records instead of taking the word of movie bloggers. To guarantee that I don't make a mistake, and encourage any studio or producer to correct any mistake that I might make, I do not hide the files with cryptic file names like movie pirates do, and I do not host the movies in a small offshore nation to prevent movie studios from finding either me or the movies. Every movie is named and dated and very easy for motion picture studios to search for and find . . . . . And believe me, they are constantly watching. You may have only discovered this web site recently, but all of the movie studios watch my listings very closely, and have since the very early days. Our legal system makes it very easy for movie studio lawyers to quickly shut down an offending web site located in the U.S., and I am a very cautious person who wants to be around for a while, and have no interest in abusing the rights of others. I am also very easy to find . . . . I am a very public person with my face on every page of the web site, and a contact link on every page of the web site, and if you look at the 'meet Jimbo' page you can even easily discover my cell phone number. The movies that have been here for years now are still here because they have no current legal owner or legal guardian.
If you find an error or factual mistake, please use the contact page to let me know so that I can correct it for everyone else. This web site attempts to celebrate the efforts of every actor from the first decades of motion pictures - not just the stars - because like a grand stew, every actor adds a unique flavor to the film, and without any of them the movie would not be the same. If you are one of these actors, or a friend or family member of an actor, please send me any anecdotes and stories that you know about any of them, and I will gladly add them to the site to enrich our knowledge about that actor or the movie they played in.
