Victor Mature (born in Louisville, Kentucky; 29 January 1915–4 August 1999) was an American film actor . He is often described as an early examplar of the term ' due to his muscular physique and stolid onscreen manner. But unlike any of his contemporaries and his many successors, Mature always brought a sense of fragility, doubt and uncertainty to his characters. His Samson in Samson and Delilah is no doubt his best known role; not because of the beefcake, but for the pathos he brings to the blinded hero .
