MBC - Classic Beefcake  
Everybody knows that cheesecake photos were really hot stuff by the '40s but I'll bet you think of beefcake as a bit more modern. So, here to show that women (and gay men) had their eye candy too as early as 1932 here is Johnny Weissmuller in his loin cloth posed and lit a bit more sexily than you'd expect for a picture to promote an adventure movie.

Photobucket


Somewhere I've got a couple of more pictures nearly this old of guys who did modeling before they got their break in acting posing for stuff that was pure beefcake without even the excuse of a publicity still. If I ever turn them up among the 1500 unsorted pictures I'm slowly sorting out I'll post another.

from what i understand, tarzan was all the rage precisely because he was half naked.

I think you need to check your math. Perhaps we need to have Ren take a look.

LOL. Well, his pc's messed up so he might miss this. Maybe you should send him an email and tell him we have a statistical problem we need him to solve - desperately.

Lets see if he answers.

Sure, what's the stat problem exactly?

Fano says that he is half dressed. I believe that he is more one quarter dressed, if that. What do your calculations return?
Abraxasdr_abraxas on June 16th, 2008 07:03 pm (UTC)
Half is too much; considering that I think he's wearing nothing under that loincloth. :is distracted: Er, I'll say 10% to 20% covered.
Abraxasdr_abraxas on June 16th, 2008 07:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'll say that's 15% covered.
Abraxasdr_abraxas on June 16th, 2008 07:06 pm (UTC)
LOL the shadows are covering up more of him than that loin cloth; and I'm not including anything below the thighs as 'possible' coverage area for my estimation.

I'll take that as an official ruling.

I keep looking at the picture, purely for scientific reasons, of course, and I think it's closer to 7/8ths.

I think Johnny's 5/6 nekkid.
ranuel: Evil Grinranuel on June 16th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC)
He can't be nekkid he's not up to anything.

*looks at Johnny again*

*looks at Johnny one more time*

Oh. Right. He's not.
