In a classic portico, Ed Fury is sitting, decides to take a dive, decides to check the water first, answer the phone and a woman asks him to go back and pose on the portico.
This is a movie showing how physique photos are taken. The film show the steps that are taken from the moment the photographers and the models arrive at the location to the final shot. Each model is clipped of all objectionable body hair and then the model's body is oiled and a posing strap put on. Of course a little horse play goes on too, that is shown as well. We are sure that you will learn things you didn't know before.
Filmed by Apollo with Kris Studios staff doing on site photography.
Madd Coww notes:
Days of Greek Gods (1949 or 1954?) is a 5-minute live sound posing strap film. It was filmed by Richard Fontaine, and stars Bob Delmonteque. The actual year of production is either 1949 or 1954. Subsequent ads, including those from Fontaine's own studio, suggest it was produced in 1949. However, an interview with Fontaine says that the film was initially marketed with an ad in Tomorrow's Man (which did not begin publication until 1952). A feature in Vim (October 1954) says it is "soon to be released." I'd say it is "not to be missed."
It was originally produced in a 15 minute, 16mm version, for showing in high school art classes. However there was a greater demand for 8mm home movie versions. So the film was condensed for 8mm distribution. The film starred Bob Del Monteque, a bodybuilder, model and photographer (with his own studio), and Bob was known to step out of his posing strap on occasion (see attached photos, for example). The co-stars were Artie Zeller and Jimmy Apollo.
The first posing strap film with sound. The dialogue is so awkward, that subtitles would have been acceptable. The three models offer their addresses for photographs for sale at the end.
Model walks up the road but is so hot that he strips down to high rise briefs. Coming to a gate he is greated by the photographer who wears short cutoff jeans that are split all the way up the side. Model strikes poses in various outfits indoors and outside. Model waits outdoors in a posing strap while photographer prints the pictures for him to see.

Blood... attempted murder... a young boy and an old hand at the game...
A guy comes in out of the snow and the artist home owner helps him out of his clothes by the fire and then gives him some posing briefs to wear. While the owner takes a shower, the guest sees male art pictures on the wall and strikes some poses himself. When the owner returns to the fire he puts on posing briefs too and the guest stretches his legs out on the couch while the owner starts to draw him. The guest removes the briefs and stands before the artist in a muscle pose. The closing caption: "Just the beginning." No frontal nudity.
A comedy about three movie extras and the troubles each one gets into on the movie set of a six million dollar movie production.
