    After just two pageants he was replaced by Gary Collins.
    He acted in many cheaply made 'B' movies.
    He dyed his hair platinum blond for his role in 'Doc Savage.'
    He guest starred on 'The Love Boat' and 'Fantasy Island' several times.
    He portrayed 'Tarzan' on television and in the movies.
    Fans of the 'Tarzan' book and films say he is closest to resembling Edgar Rice Burrough's physical ideal of Tarzan.
    He became a successful mystery writer once his acting career cooled.
    He aged well and is in good shape.
    He is married to his second wife over twenty years.
