1926: Actor and bodybuilder Steve Reeves, who, at the peak of his career, was the highest-paid actor in Europe, is born in Glasgow, Montana. Reeves, who won the Mr. Universe bodybuilding competition in 1950, starred in such low-budget movies as "Hercules," "Hercules Unchained," "Goliath and the Barbarians" and "The Last Days of Pompeii." He died from complications of lymphoma at the age of 74 on May 1, 2000.
