The Girl with something extra actually starred Sally Field and John Davidson, since my mind confused who Sally even was or played, it's safe assume that it must have been focused on Mr. Davidson.
More importantly it's retained the memory of one particular episode" "All the Nude That's Fit to Print" in which the character of Mr. Davidson was approached to pose nude as a centerfold. The plot focused on his deciding on such and featured a dream montage of Mr. Davidson making publicity appearance in the buff.
I can't say that I've ever really considered Mr Davidson attractive, he's always been a little too "square" and squeaky clean for me but the image of him being interviewed nude by Merv Griffin has been hard to shake out of my memory banks. Just sayin......

On April 23, 1939, Goodrich entered his first bodybuilding competition, the Bronx YMHA (Young Men’s Hebrew Association) Greater New York Best Built Man contest. He beat 54 other contestants to win the tall-class and overall decisions.
Six weeks later, on June 10, 1939, in Amsterdam, New York, Goodrich won the contest that resulted in his national physique fame: the America’s Best Physique Contest, also known as the Mr. America. . It's said that his body was so well developed from his track, gymnastics and aerobic training that he didn't really train per-se for the Mr. America Contest. He just walked in, showed off his body and won.
Later he put his athletic skills and training to use as a stand in/stunt double for such athletes turned movie stars as Buster Crabbe (the Olympic swimmer tapped to become one of moviedoms Tarzans) and Red Grange (a football star turned actor) as well as John Wayne and Ken Maynard.
In 1948, he jointly promoted the Mr. USA contest with Vic Tanny. A few years later, he acted as a talent scout, helping to recruit musclemen for Mae West’s touring nightclub act, long before the first Chippendale’s dancer was born.
As a gym owner with seven locations, his main facility was at 6624 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California. Mr Goodrich passed away on December 06, 1991
