30 hand picked films. A new one every day
This film looks at the 1950’s muscle men’s magazines and the representative industry that were popular supposedly as health and fitness magazines.
A bouncy, if rather timid, evocation of the distant, recent past. All plaid shirts and glistening pecs, it looks nice if not revealing a great deal contextually as well as physically.
This was bad in every way, but there is always something to appreciate in the male figure.
