Extra oil and extra tan, please.


This 1940 French photo is heavy on the oil and suntan.
It does show off his back muscles nicely, though.

  1. He must have been slathered with sun tan lotion! Could there have been some body make up involved?

    1. Body make-up would have been available at the time, but if it was used, it seems to have been applied less to his behind.

  2. Remember that in the 30's and 40's there were B&W films which were red insensitive; the grey tones related to the colors were not as we are used now.
