He competed in two Olympic Games as a swimmer. At the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam , he won the bronze medal for the 1,500 meters freestyle , and at the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles , he won the gold medal for the 400 meters freestyle when he beat Jean Taris of France by a tenth of a second. Hollywood[ edit ] Crabbe and lion Jack, one of his partners in King of the Jungle , are having a lunch in a Hollywood restaurant on February 6, 1933. Crabbe became a lion tamer while working on that film.
In King of the Jungle 1933 , Jungle Man 1941 , and the serial King of the Congo 1952 , he played typical "jungle man" roles. In 1936 he was picked over several stars to play Flash Gordon in the very successful Flash Gordon serial , followed by two sequels, released by Universal in 1938 and 1940.
The series was shown later extensively on American television in the 1950s and 1960s, then edited for release on home video. As a 34 year old married man, Crabbe had a deferment from the draft but made Army training films for the field artillery at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma along with Fuzzy St. Following the war Crabbe appeared opposite Weissmuller as a rival in two jungle films, Swamp Fire 1946 and Captive Girl 1950.
His real-life son, Cullen Crabbe, appeared in this show as the character "Cuffy Sanders". The ever-industrious Crabbe became a stockbroker and businessman during this period. In the mid-1950s, Crabbe purchased the Adirondack campus of the Adirondack-Florida School,  which advertised itself as a swim camp for youngsters aged eight to 14.
A pool line was named after him, and pools were sold by "Buster Crabbe Dealers" throughout the eastern seaboard and southern states from 1952 until 1990. Though he followed other pursuits, he never stopped acting. However, his career in the 1950s and after was limited to lower-budget films, notably westerns such as Gunfighters of Abilene 1960 , Arizona Raiders 1965 and The Bounty Killer 1965.
He appeared as the father of a young swimmer in the comedy Swim Team 1979 and as a sheriff in the horror film Alien Dead 1980 , followed by the feature film The Comeback Trail in 1982, one year before his death. Crabbe also appeared in television commercials  for Hormel Chili, Icy Hot , and the Magic Mold Bodyshirt , an upper body male girdle of sorts, which purportedly helped in weight loss.
Through Icy Hot, he was actively involved in arthritis education. Despite his numerous film and television appearances, he is best remembered today as one of the original action heroes of 1930s and 1940s cinema. In the 1950s, two comic book series were published named after him. In 1965, he was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame. During his senior swimming career Crabbe set 16 world and 35 national records. His first book "Energistics" was an exercise program for seniors.
It sold quite well and went into several printings. Feinman then did a series of infomercials with Crabbe that sold a huge amount of diverse products. Personal life[ edit ] In 1933, he married Adah Virginia Held 1912 — 2004 and gave himself one year to make it as an actor. Crabbe and his wife were the parents of two daughters, Sande and Susan, and a son, Cullen.
Sande died of apparent anorexia in 1957, after a long fast when she was 20; at the time of her death she weighed 60 pounds.
