In Spartacus 1960 , Kirh Douglas was decked out in some sort of loincloth-panties for a turn in the arena.
He moved into directing years ago so who knows what he looks like now but when I see his name pop up in the credits it takes me back to scenes such as the ones you included.
Look at ol' Captain Von Trapp himself, , in the 1969 film The Royal Hunt of the Sun, in which he plays an Incan god-chief.
Suddenly, I want to go create some makeshift loin cloths of my own.

Eye popping to say the least.
