Beefcake Behind the gleaming, well-oiled muscles and high-minded fitness advice of 1950s physique magazines, was a secret world known only to those on the inside. This was the world of swinging cats, daring hopheads, reckless love affairs and a repressed sexuality that was willing to risk anything for release.

Thom Fitzgerald, in the follow-up film to his award-winning debut The Hanging Garden, reveals this hidden world with BEEFCAKE, the funny and provocative tale of the rise and fall of physique photographer Bob Mizer. Mizer created the popular magazine Physique Pictorial , developing devoted followers among men, women and aspiring bodybuilders -- before being prosecuted by the law.
