Stephen Lester "Steve" Reeves (January 21, 1926 – May 1, 2000) was an American professional bodybuilder, actor, and philanthropist. He was famous in the mid-1950s as a movie star in Italian-made peplum films, playing the protagonist as muscular characters such as Hercules, Goliath, and Sandokan. At the peak of his career, he was the highest-paid actor in Europe. He was gay icon. In 1949 he filmed a Tarzan-type television pilot called Kimbar of the Jungle, and in 1950 became Mr. Universe. 

Studio Arax of Paris produced exquisite work from the 1930s to the 1950s. The famous studio featured classic, athletic images of the handsomest young stars of Europe's movie screen and Olympic fields. One of the studio's easily identifiable logos and Paris address are usually printed in the lower right corner or border in the print, as well as stamped on the reverse.
