Waitin' for the Weekend

Changing it up this week with some vintage men of film.  Can you name them all?

Answers below the jump . . .

1. and 2. Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., shows his roguish grin during a break from shooting Gunga Din, 1938; he was still a sexy, elegant charmer at 80 as he was here.

3. Johnny Weissmuller, a gold medalist at the 1924 Olympic games, in a swimming suit that gives ample evidence of his claim to be King of the Jungle.

4. Buddy Rogers kisses his dying comrade-in-arms Richard Arlen in Wings, the 1927 silent film that won the very first Oscar for Best Picture.

5. Buster Crabbe, gold medalist swimmer at the 1932 Olympics, rocketed to movie fame as Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.

6. Montgomery Clift has daddy issues with John Wayne in the 1948 cowboy classic Red River.

7.  Irresistible Rock Hudson – who knew? I might have dreamed, but I would never, ever have guessed.

8. Long, lean Clint Eastwood in an episode of Rawhide, 1959.

9. Paul Newman shows some blue-eyed soul in the 1959 jazz movie Paris Blues.

10. Bad boy Brad Pitt whips a big'un out of his tight blue jeans in 1991’s Thelma and Louise.

11. Matt LeBlanc shows what he’s made of in this undated shower scene.

12. Studly Tom Cruise does a perfect sock-slide before rocking out in his tighty whities in 1983’s Risky Business, the movie that made him a star.  If you’ve never seen this famous clip, better check it out on YouTube before they take away your gay card, fellas.

13. To make a baker’s dozen of delights, a hitherto unseen publicity still from the 1978 porn classic The Other Side of Aspen, starring (back to front) Casey Donovan, Al Parker, and Dick Fisk. OMG what a rack of meat. The usual still from this flick has them all in the same position but staring very seriously at the camera.

Being vintage myself, I should recognize more than Stallone, Pitt, and the guy sliding across the floor. Of course I recognize Al Parker and Dick Fisk. What does that say about me?

Muskox said...

Okay, I got Rock Hudson, Brad Pitt, and Paul Newman. I think the cowboy in the clinging under drawers is Rory Calhoun. As for the guy sliding across the floor, obviously you would have to have seen the film. I have a vague notion it's Elvis Presley, but I wouldn't put any money on it. The rest of them look sort of familiar, but I can't come up with a name. I hope you'll spill the beans on all of them. And what movie is that kiss from?

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

Hmmm let's see. I think the gif of the kiss is from Wings, then I got Monty Clift, Rock Hudson, maybe Clint Eastwood? damn, he's fine. Paul Newman, Pitt, LeBlanc, Cruise in the only movie I like with him, and of course, Al Parker in one of those classics. Who is the first guy? He looks like someone from early gay porn and at the same time he's giving me Bradley Cooper realness.

The interest level here makes me wonder if I ought to start posting some film-history lectures. You guys did fairly well on the first quiz - I've gone back and added all the names after the jump, so you can score yourselves.

PS to Frank -- I think it shows you're still a healthy young horndog, now trapped in a dirty old man's body. Like me. Grin.

Davis said...

Dayum - I never knew Douglas Fairbanks was so alluring... Thanks for the quiz - I love it, also having the softest spot in my heart for Paul Newman - he practically walked on water in my fantasies.

Russ Manley said...

Glad you like. BTW in my younger days, I never understood what all the fuss was about with Newman - I mean, he was so old, like my parents' age or nearly so. It's only since I've reached my full growth that I have come to appreciate his oh-so-blue eyes and sensuous physique, among other manly charms.

You ought to check out Doug Jr.'s brilliantly nonchalant turn as a devilishly charming villain in The Prisoner of Zenda sometime. I love it. His daddy wasn't so bad, either.

Davis said...

Oh yes the blue blue eyes. I can watch his performance in Exodus over and over again.

The husband and I are inveterate TCM watchers - I'll look for the Prisoner!

Russ Manley said...

Isn't TCM wonderful? Though we only seem to watch it when the Internet is out. And it just isn't the same since dear Robert left us. They keep trying to jazz it up - which is not at all the point.

I say they should just go back to Robert's first day and start replaying all his broadcasts over again. That would do nicely for the next twenty years.

Davis said...

With you on that too Russ. My husband can watch six or seven movies in a day if I let him!
