Tired of waiting for the scene when he takes it off? Then feast your eyes on Shirtless!, featuring more than 175 images of the best bare-chested men in Hollywood. Shirtless! tracks the muscular development of the male movie star with many never-before-seen photos. Here are all the favorite heroes of American cinema including silent-era heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, a swimsuit-clad Cary Grant from the thirties, barrel-chested Bob Mitchum at the height of forties patriotism, the fifties rebel James Dean, the hip and hirsute Sean Connery from the sixties, seventies stud Jan-Michael Vincent, eighties superman Arnold Schwarzenegger, the nineties sculpted Rupert Everett, and uberbabe Chris Klein beginning the new century. You'll also find some unexpected displays of male flesh and rediscover classic hunk films that are worth another look. An irreverent, indulgent, and informative visual journey through the world of movie muscle, Shirtless! will leave you breathless.
