George Quaintance was a very popular artist of the 50s, whose life ended too soon. The photographs published under his name (and often used as reference for his paintings) have been attributed to Victor Garcia.

The joys of the internet -- while searching for one thing, I found another...
This YouTube video (uploaded by KOK Magazine) is actually a compilation of two Zenith (aka Apollo) productions -- the solo DeCarlo pose flick "Cocktails" and the every-boy's-fantasy team-up of DeCarlo and Ullrich in "Day Dreams." A real rarity -- Art in a posing strap!
The sound is great -- physique films were silent back then -- but maybe there was a special case made and this is the actual soundtrack?
Tom was paid the astronomical sum of twenty dollars to pose in the sand dunes for Dick Fontaine's camera. I hope he upped the amount for the duo posing with Art.
Circa 1954, as the model release attests...
