Giving that his talents lay almost entirely in his (remarkable) masculine beauty rather than his acting abilities, I would say he got exactly as good a career as he could ever have hoped to have.
Well yes, You do have a point.
He looked marvelous.
His talent lay almost entirely between his legs . Ask Lana Turner, Esther Williams, etc. Was known to be packing one of the biggest in town . When he was doing a play with Ethel Merman on Broadway ( they hated each other) he took to free balling it, to get more attention. Merman freaked, and told the producers to make him wear underwear.He refused , and kept getting all the gossip column write -ups , for his 'performance'.
