Making this list almost got the better of me. Blimey, could you present a more difficult task?! I'm not even sure of the order. Anyway, I've tried to give my best arguments for my choices of every pretty male specimen on the list, thus justifying the order.. sort of (though, believe me, I've changed it a number of times). I now present the finished edition to you with much joy and trepidation - it's such a sensitive area to make a opinion about and I hope that you can forgive me along the way.
Please, comment and give me your much appreciated opinions. Thanks!
- Paul Newman
- Clark Gable
- Gene Kelly
- Gary Cooper
|Photogenic (excuse me) as hell!|
I mean - seriously! Look at him! And just take a look at "Morocco"
where he plays opposite Marlene D...He's pure eye candy!
Besides a very solemn, strong actor - a man of few words
- not a bad thing at all.
- Rudolph Valentino
- Sean Connery
- Gregory Peck
|He was so very sweet in "Roman Holiday", when I first |
came across him. And with such a gentle and handsome exterior
(reminding me of a more pensive version of Rock Hudson)
he could hardly ever enter a room unnoticed. No wonder...!
- Cary Grant
|His remarkable talent for acting - especially comedy - |
and his good looks made him the perfect choice
for the male lead in romantic screwball comedies
and suspense, too. Was there anything that man couldn't do?
- Laurence Olivier
|Magnificent actor - unpredictable, yet natural |
in his manner and with such a pleasant voice!
Personally, I find him irresistible in "Rebecca"
and with beautiful Vivien Leigh by his side
on and off screen, it can't get much more attractive.
- Rock Hudson
|He could play a playboy and a cad, but most of all, |
he had humour, kindness and honesty written all over
his handsome face, and I just can't see why anyone
- men as well as women - would not come to love him.
Other (also very worthy) contenders: Robert Redford, James Dean, Peter Finch, Christopher Reeve, Sidney Poitier, Yul Brynner, Fredric March, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Jeremy Brett, Tony Curtis, Alain Delon (sort of a French version of James Dean, ain't he?), William Holden, Christopher Plummer, Brian Aherne, Burt Lancaster, Ivor Novello, Montgomery Clift, Rod Taylor, Marlon Brando, James Stewart, Dirk Bogarde, Gilbert Roland, Alan Bates, Steve McQueen, Robert Taylor, Charlie Chaplin, Laurence Harvey, Toshiro Mifune, Louis Jourdan, James Garner, Leslie Nielsen, William Shatner, Joel McCrea, Richard Burton, Tyrone Power ... more?
