WHAT AN AMAZING HUNK!!!
Buster had a totally unique career. in his first film, KING OF THE JUNGLE, he was advertised as "the world's most perfectly deleloped male". I would agree with that assessment and vote him as Hollywood's most handsome man ever! FLASH GORDON is the role which makes him a screen immortal.

I met Buster Crabbe at a Western Film Festival in the 1970's and had the pleasure of asking him about his relationship with another Tarzan great, Johnny Weissmueller. Both men won Olympic Gold Medals for Swimming (Weismueller (1924-28) and Crabbe (1932). The good natured Crabbe told the story of how he beat an out of shape Weissmueller in a casual swimming race, and how he tried to replace Weissmueller as the new "Tarzan". Years later the two both appeared in "Swamp Fire" (1946). The director asked Crabbe, the villain, to make their fight scene realistic. Consequently, Crabbe held Johnny under the water to produce a lot of bubbles for the director. A surprised Weissmueller, who had been drinking Scotch at the time, never forgave Crabbe for this...and from that time on the two were very distant.
