    This would remind me of being a teenager and looking at pictures of Frank Zane and Serge Nubret.

    So I'm not looking.

    I had no idea that magazine covers were showing this in the mid-1950s. Were these sold to the general public, or only available by private subscription/membership?

    I just checked out some online pics of him, I can see what you mean. Those Mr. Olympia winners are incredible. Zane reminds me of the line in the movie "Twins" when Danny DeVito sees Arnold Scwartzenegger without his shirt for the first time:

    "What are those bumps doing all over your body? You're all swelled up. You look like you're about to explode."

    Seems like there was a day when the only audience bodybuilding could get were us gay muscle worshippers. I came up too late for that. The first bodybuilding magazine I ever bought was Muscular Development in 1973 (I still have a copy). Still pretty much in the fringe at that point but getting more public acceptance thanks to Bob Hoffman, Peary Rader, and Joe Weider.

    I think it would have been fun to hang around with Bob Mizer and his "athletic models" in the 50's, at least how that life was portrayed in the movie "Beefcake". Of course at that time everyone was risking prison with such activity.

    I have an issue of Strength and Health from 1945. I don't remember where I got it. I think someone gave it to me. It's falling apart, missing the first few pages. Haven't looked at in some time but I just took a look at it to see when it was from. It's interesting.

    Amazing, Photobucket pulled one of those magazine covers above, that had a guy in a posing strap. And they've been pulling some of the comical pics I use in threads here for emphasis. No 4-letter words in them, no nudity, not threatening, can't figure out their reasoning.

    Filmed in New Jersey, in the East Orange studio I would assume. The same place where Thomas Edison filmed his male staff all dancing together on several occasions. I always did wonder about old Tom....

    Here's one of several films Edison did with his staff, this one an experiment with sound, in 1894. William Dickson was the person who headed his motion picture development:
