Hunks »Helmut Berger

Austrian Actor

Well, hello Helmut Berger!

While several of his films have been on my radar of movies I should probably see one day (The Damned, The Garden of the Fitzi Continis) I have to admit I’ve never seen those devilish Giallo worthy eyes and devastating cheek bones in action.

(And unfortunately the one film of his in Netflix instant Beast with a Gun seems largely unwatchable.)

Still, he is undeniably, irrefutably a very very handsome man who would have been a perfect Jaime from Game of Thrones in his day.

Thanks to one of my favorite sites, Chained and Perfumed for introducing me.

Hunks »Colin Clive

It’s Alive!

Universal Films classic Frankenstein is still the ultimate adaptation despite many lesser ones throughout the years.

Of course Boris Karloff’s monster is most famous (thanks in part to make up genius Jack Pierce) but let’s not forget Dr. Frankenstein himself!

Colin Clive with his classic, yet severe Hollywood era good looks- strong chin, deep eyes – delivers an imitable performance of madness and obsession.

He dies tragically young of tuberculosis.

Hunks »Gregory Peck

Atticus Finch

Dignity. It is the word that comes to mind when you think of Gregory Peck both with his personal convictions and his iconic role as the justice seeking, perfect father figure Atticus Finch.

Handsome would be the other word that comes to mind.

Check him out in hipster beard mode below, growl!

Hunks »Stu Sutcliffe

The Fifth Beatle

He’s known as the fifth Beatle and in lamer circles as the guy Stephen Dorff played but have you taken a good look and seen what a total doll Stu Sutcliffe was?

He was way more styling than his friends and looks decades ahead of his time.

Seriously, he could have taken over The Smiths and even Morrissey would be swooning.

While he gave up the life of Beatle fame for love and art, we never got a chance to see what would become of him. He collapsed and died at age 22 of a brain aneurysm.

Hunks »Joe Jack Talcum

Dead Milkman

Nerdy yet punk rock, scrawny but cool – these Dead Milkmen I had seen on Mtv were very unlike the boys I knew in Colorado Springs and I wanted to find them.. which I eventually did in abundance later at art school.

Lead singer Joe Jack Talcum, aka Butterfly Fairweather, aka Jasper Thread, aka Joseph Genaro and his brand of dork punk could explode on the scene today, fitting in easily with the hip young things. But these men were ahead of their times, making squares scratch their heads way back in 1988.

1988, I was ten, and the moment he giggled in the Punk Rock Girl video my life long love for arty nerds had begun.

Hunks »Frank Gorshin as The Riddler

Green Tight Spaz

I’m not sure if my attraction to Frank Gorshin‘s portrayal of The Riddler is one of my strange quirks (like thinking Benjamin Horne was kind of a babe) or if he gives everybody hotpants.

I mean sure if you were dating him and brought him out to dinner to meet your friends, undoubtedly he would be referred to as a total spaz – probably because he’d have made his entrance by exploding a Moldavian friendship cake in a plot to steal a priceless stuffed pachyderm BUT wouldn’t you agree that he’s like a leaner, funner James Cagney type who fills out a pair of green tights just fine?

Hunks »Glenn Gould

Celebrated Pianist

Glenn Gould was a rare talent and his life and unusual personality are fascinating (see 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould if you haven’t!) but I guess it just eluded me somehow that he was also such an incredibly stylish cutie.

Hunks »Jack Kerouac

He Belonged to the Beat Generation

The recent Tom Palumbo entry lead me to these stunning, heart stopping Jack Kerouac portraits and re-lit old high school stirrings.

An iconoclast of cool, his name is synonymous with the Beat movement and, just look at the man – he was wildly handsome.

Opinions on his writing vary (though the more poetic of my male friends have always fawned over On the Road), but his influence on culture and literature are undeniable.

While his life ended due to years of heavy, heavy drinking, you can feel his charisma radiating from any photograph taken of him.

Jaqen H’ghar

Thanks to Winter is Coming for the latest casting info.

And do enjoy the most amazing fan art below.

Hunks »Iain Glen

Scottish Actor

I have a crush on Sir Jorah in Game of Thrones, played with gravitas by Iain Glen.

Whether he’s sporting rugged capes or dapper top coats, whether he’s taking to the stage or being villainous in a crappy franchise (both Tomb Raider and Resident Evil!) the Scottish gent is undeniably handsome.

I am thrilled to learn he will be joining the cast of Downton Abbey for season two, but fear for what this means for Jorah.

Hunks »Sam Beam

Singer, Songwriter, Babe

Sam Beam, aka Iron and Wine, looks like my husband spliced with Zach Galifinakis with a voice like the summer breeze. Truly hunky indeed.

Hunks »Shel Silverstein

Poet, Illustrator, Musician, Generally Awesome Guy

Shel Silverstein was a big part of my childhood, probably like many of you. I grew up reading his books and once was so haunted by one of his cassettes that I brought it to my mom crying asking her to hide it from me since, even though it terrified me, I couldn’t stop listening to it.

A talented artist, wit and musician, you can also see he was a first rate babe. Can’t you just envision him teaching a class in old school butchering or being one of the only men that wouldn’t look lame holding a guitar down on the Williamsburg waterfront? Straight up heart melter, the kind that even dudes can get psyched about (just look at the joy in Dustin Hoffman’s face just to be hanging out with him).

He sadly passed away a little over a decade ago and suffered several tragedies in his own life including the early death of a wife and daughter. He gave the world much joy though with his quirky, awesome books.

Hunks »Christopher Atkins

Teen Heart Throb

I could never get behind the Blue Lagoon perm, but this shirtless, short short, tennis shoe wearing, smiling, prepster Christopher Atkins in the boat? Now, that’s a teen heart throb I can get behind.

Besides, what young girl/gay boy didn’t dream that their future days of romance would include such a vista as this photo shoot?

Hunks »Johnny Weissmuller

He, Tarzan

Johnny Weissmuller is probably the most recognizable Tarzan and definitely the hunkiest. One of the world’s best swimmers, he won many Olympic medals and set world records in the sport before he went Hollywood.

Hunks »David Ruffin

Mr. Temptation

David Ruffin lent his scruffy yet smooth voice to some of The Temptations best loved hits like My Girl and Ain’t Too Proud To Beg. His solo career was less commercially successful but still yielded some top ten hits like My Whole World Ended.

With a megawatt smile, kind eyes, heavy black spectacles and nerdy good looks he was uniquely, stylishly handsome and stunningly modern (doesn’t the third photo below look like a brand new album?).

But as we learn about so many famous people we admire, the facade hid a much darker reality. He was plagued by drug addiction which eventually took his life and a huge ego that ended his relationship with The Temptations on a sour note.

Hunks »Ray Manzarek

Doors Keyboardist

Jim Morrison may have brought the poetry, the leather pants, the pouty lips and the raw sexuality, but Ray Manzarek brought the mutton chops, the cleft chin, the psychedelia thanks to his keyboard and a more refined sex appeal behind those wire frame glasses.

Now sporting a handsome aged rocker meets Sydney Pollack look, Manzarek continues to make music. It’s in his hey day, however when he made buttoned up pinstripes seem so rock and roll.
