Joe Bob Briggs

Drive-In Movie Critic of Grapevine, TX

Dear Jesse:
I not only saw Ator, I saw it back when it was playing in real live theaters, on the big screen.

After Miles O'Keeffe made Tarzan with Bo Derek, he was much in demand as a piece of beefcake, but he had no experience in movies, so he went to Italy for several years to learn how to act.

The first movie they made with him was Ator, in an effort to establish a continuing character. (In fact, there's a sequel to Ator, but, fortunately, that's the last one they made.)

Miles now admits it was prob'ly a mistake to think he could learn much making low-budget movies for Italian slimeballs, and if you mention Ator in his presence, he'll KILL you.

I'm not kidding. I've tried it.
