Ben Rebhuhn

by | Nov 1, 2023

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, that’s one of the typical ads for George F. Jowett’s mail order courses that appeared in the back of comic books… but sometime around the early 1950’s — and we are not exactly sure of the circumstances — Ben Rebhuhn’s name started appearing in the ads instead of Jowett’s.

And yes, Rebhuhn simply had his face superimposed over Jowett’s original artwork. Rebhuhn’s “courses” sold under the “American Body Building Club” with a Great Neck N.Y. return address, until well into the 1960’s.
