Wasn't he supposed to have one of the biggest dicks in Hollywood ?
That's why Lana Turner, who only went after the biggest (Stompanato-
who got stabbed, Lex Barker,etc.) put up with these guys. She was hit,
threatened, had money stolen - but put up with it all, just for the mighty
weiner. She acted just like a gay man
It's much better to look good than to feel good?
That 1940s-1950s obsession with not showing navels on men, causing them to wear their bathing suits and trousers hiked past ribcage, always makes their asses look even fatter then they were (Clark Gable, etc..)
I had my legs in the air for him all the time.
Ethel Merman wasn't gay, r7. You are an idiot of the first order. Please, stop posting on DL. Go take a course in popular culture of the 20th century, gay history and then wait several months before attempting to join the ranks of the posters here.
R10 that's actually how high men wore their pants then. It has nothing to do with showing navel 'cause they wore all their pants/shorts that way. Even today, your waist is measured along the belly button, but many men prefer to wear them lower.
r12 I thought Ethel Merman and Jackie Susann had a thing
Pants were designed to be worn on the waist. It's only because most modern men are so fat and sloppy and don't have a trim waistline that it's become customary to wear them on the hips with fat bellies hanging over them.
All I know is Freddie Bartholomew never got over him.
You look marvelous.
Ethel's response, when she heard the gay rumor: "Hell, no! I can't even stand to look at it in the shower!"
But your (misspelled) comment did work, r1, because Merman and Lamas despised each other.
"I thought Ethel Merman and Jackie Susann had a thing"
No--Susann had some sort of obsession bordering on stalkerdom with Merman & Merman apparently couldn't stand her.
Since that mean old water slug, Esther W., liked Fernando so much, does that mean she was a size queen ? Never heard about Jeff Chandler's peen, but just from looking at him- very tall, broad shouldered, big ears, big nose, I'd think he must have really been packing . Anyone ?
I believe he fucked me.
Arlene's always been such a lady.
I was first introduced to Fernando in one of the rare unmemorable Lucy-Desi Comedy Hours. The one that takes place on the ski slopes of Sun Valley? See, I knew you'd forgotten.
Even as a boy I thought he looked mean and fish-like, like a barracuda left on the beach. Extremely unappealing with bad vibes.
And his son feels like a similar lump, except more entitled and rather dumb. And he actually has had gay sex, because I know someone who blew him.
Were supposed to be surprised at that ? Honey, almost every good looking actor thats come through Hollywood's, been blown by guys.
The better looking, the more bj's. It's called ego darlin. And a mouth is a mouth.
Supposedly Fernando insisted that Esther forsake her children from her previous marriage when they set up house. But then, aren't there stories of Esther taking in and raising young Lorenzo when he was ignored by Arlene?
I'd look forward to a tell-all bio by Lorenzo if he could only get it together to write it. Stories from the demise of MGM seen through his childhod eyes to superstardom on Falcon Crest with sidebars on Jane Wyman, Lana Turner, and Allan Carr and the cast of Grease, not to mention Allan Carr.
May be coming soon - from what I understand, he's low on $$$, and the tell-all book is usually the last resort for those whose careers are over, and they've
got nothing else to lose, and need cash. He can also cover that crazy fame -whore ex, Shauna, and all the tail he got in his sexy stud years. Saw him recently, at Pavillions, in WeHo, and he didn't look bad - but could see, even with his sunglasses on, he's had extensive work done, and looks like he's another one hooked on Botox, and fillers.
Was he considered attractive? He looked a little horsey-faced.
You know what they say - horse face, horse c_ _ K. I should know.
Wasn't the story he was appearing, with Merman, in a Broadway show, in the late 50's, and wore these extremely tight white pants, and the size of his wiener was so great, it upstaged the Merm ? She asked him to make it less obvious, and instead he fluffed it up even more, to bug her. That's what I always heard.
Esther said in her book that he never wore underwear - a rarity back then I'd imagine. She used to listen to him fucking Lana in the the dressing room next to hers and he was so good at it she decided to bag him for herself.
Ethel Merman's face was ALWAYS slick and glistening w/ chorus girls' pussy juices. That's why Walter Winchell; et al always snarkily commented on her...."dewy" look.
But the SMELL!! Hoooooooooo-WHEE!!!
RE 33 What rock did you crawl out from ?
Took comedy classes from Slade
Well Lorenzo just after "Grease' posed for Playgirl, at full attention, no less, and Fernando got it killed before publication. Just surprised the shots never ended up on line.
Those trunks look photoshopped on, #35. Bet he was wearing a Speedo in the original pic, his legendary manhood obscenely obvious.
R37 Gimme a break, really? Lol, you believe he is wearing a Speedo and that this picture is photoshopped? Whoa!
Yeah, #38. Everything else in the photo is in sharp focus, even her painted toenails. Then you have those smudgy black trunks painted on. Esp. fake along the waistband.
'Nando ain't wearin' no granny panties!
He was fucking ugly. His son Lorenzo sizzles...Someone needs to do a thread on him.
He should make out without a shirt on with Billy Martin.
[quote]Well Lorenzo just after "Grease' posed for Playgirl, at full attention, no less
I'm off to find these, PRONTO!
His elephantine penis can be seen in many, many huge bulge shots in the tawdry jungle action romance 50s flick, "Jivaro." It's on Netflix.
[quote]I thought Ethel Merman and Jackie Susann had a thing
Jackie did, but it was small.
Large, thick, but he lasted as long as one of Arlene's nylons in a room full of cats.
Marlene Dietrich used to refer to a barbiturate suppository as a "Fernando Lamas."
Lol guys, you are delirious
I think Lana Turner did well and left him. He was very possessive, jealous and feisty. However she left him for Lex Barker and that was disastrous as well.
It would be hot if Fernando and Desi and Cesar did a threeway
[quote]Ethel Merman's face was ALWAYS slick and glistening w/ chorus girls' pussy juices
No, not at all. Merman's denial of the inevitable lesbian rumors included the famous quote about pussy, "I can't even stand to look at it in the shower." Merman was a man-hungry woman.
I want to know more about Lorenzo's hard-on pics for Playgirl!
I'll tell you one. Barabara Eden. If you can believe her. I read her autobiography and she claims to have turned down Elvis, JFK, Paul Newman, Sinatra, the list goes on and on. I think she was nice lady but I don't believe her when it comes to her romances. Sorry to go off topic. This just made me think of her.
Good looking guy. He should have had a bigger career.
Yes R66. Maybe Fernando was too fierce as a person and that was leading him astray at times.
His son Lorenzo was a real hunk as some other people mentioned in this thread as well. What a pity Lorenzo played in trash movies with a face like his.
Lorenzo is currently the star of the new season of The Joe Schmo show on spikeTv.
He is a real celebrity on a reality show that is really fake playing himself.
Sorry r68 here. When I looked up that show to make sure I got the right network I noticed the original season in 2003 had Kristen Wiig as one of the fake contestants.
Just found that funny.
Lorenzo must have a terrible character.
Esther Williams (his wife) noted numerous times in her book how well hung Fernando was, and how he loved to show it off. He would strip naked in a pool in front of quest with a full erection. Also, his other wife was Arlene Dahl, not Francis.
A tell all by Lorenzo would be interesting. But I doubt he can be very truthful.
Damn his father for scrubbing those Playgirl photos.
Isn't Lorenzo the one whose son and wife ended up fucking ? Like I said, a lot of interesting stuff to tell, but I don't think he's able to.
He'd try to sell his successful movie career (remember me in that classic, 'Body Rock' ??), etc.
Is he really that desperate for money ? I guess Joe Schmo on whatever network tells us 'yes'. Of course, doesn't he have 72 kids to support in addition to the 5 ex-wives ?
