R23 what an excellent link. His life would make an excellent movie. Very smart move R23.
If they are gay back in time they can also be attracted to people of color.
Only two for me:
Oh and Elvis
Might be interesting to bed down with A. Lincoln.
David Bowie, any time from the 1960's up until around 2000. Preferably not in his Stardust/Thin White Duke years though, because he was emaciated and a paranoid wreck at that time due to cocaine use.
Perhaps also the original rock star, [young] Franz Liszt.
The problem with anyone born before the 20th century is that, on average, they were all quite short, few people had a balanced diet so even the strongest tended to have underwhelming physiques, and people would've appeared to age faster because their skin would've been more weathered in the elements. When I think about sex with people born hundreds or thousands of years ago, I imagine lots of tooth decay, bad breath, greasy hair, sweat, smegma, general B.O. and lingering STIs.
For those who said "Jesus," for instance: I hope you like swarthy, hairy short guys (see link).
Errol Flynn (circa anytime, dude was even hot as an alcoholic daddy with health issues).
Oliver de Havilland
When I saw 42nd Street for the first time I wanted Warner Baxter deep inside me. And I still do.
R28 First movie I ever saw in a theater, Picnic, was on the other night. Holden and a few contemporaries were in it, lots of swimming & diving. The guys were very handsome, but they sure didn't go for the bodies in those days.
Andy Gibb (1977)
George Maharis. Who? You may ask? He was the star of the TV series Route 66 back in the 60's. I didn't know it at the time, but watching him on TV gave me my first "tingling" feeling in my stomach. And, I got this feeling everytime I watched the show. It wasn't long before I discovered masturbation and the realization that I was completely gay.
Gene Kelly by a MILLION miles. As much as I achingly want Newman, the ONLY one who I think hasn't quite been replicated in any way is Gene "nice face shame about the ass" Kelly.
Newman and I suppose James Dean weren't exactly prone to objectificaton but Kelly's films weren't exactly subtle and FULL ON gay porn for that era. Even fucking Kinsey -1 Frank Sinatra wanted in on the action in one pic I seen.
Heath Ledger. I'd tell him how much I love him. I'd warn him to take care of himself.
Love Heath, and always will.
So very many! Young Lloyd Bridges; Tom Brown; Young Jimmy Lydon, (still here); Richard Widmark; John Derek; Robert Ryan, and a host of others. And they wouldn't even give me the time of day.
John Schneider in the "Dukes of Hazard" days.
Telly Sevalas when he was in the talking Tina twilight zone episode.
Young Yul Brynner
George Chakiris from the West Side Story movie made in 1961.
Troy Donahue from A Summer Place made in 1959
Sal Mineo from Rebel Without a Cause made in 1955
Leslie Howard. The first twee movie star?
OK, so having located SAID scene in Anchors Aweigh - the first major Gene film apart from the two obvious big guns I've seen (until I saw THAT Sinatra screencap where he actually drools, I was gonna save em till later) - that little brat from it is the most annoying kid in cinema HISTORY
But Sinatra of course is so unsubtle and not giving a shit that he blissfully orgasms in front of him! :D This movie was about SAILORS so has tons of homoerotic jokes and inferences.
I'm not sure if this Sinatra scene was in the script, you can tell Kelly (who I think unfortunately prefers women and being ACTIVE, if his tyrannical nature is anything to go by) doesn't want THAT troll poking in to him and grabbing his priceless ass that badly.
Any guy who had an ass like Gene would like to show it off to some extent but would be MUCH wiser covering it, unless you want to look like a slutty bukkake power bottom or end up like a pass around prison bitch.
And I believe the ass isn't really unveiled in full till later works. Here Prince Gene was at his youngest and Oscar nommed. And dear old Frank played a homophobe in some late 60s film IIRC. The old skool always did it better.
Sir Lawrence "Larry" Olivier, especially while filming 'Rebecca'.
Paul Newman Circa COAHTR.
Gene Kelly, Circa SITR
Connery during the Bond years.
Cary Grant, Circa 1955
Tony Perkins, Circa 1959
Water Matthau, Circa 'Charade' (I don't care if he looked old when he was young, I think he would have been a fun lover)
For some reason, the little mustache in Rebecca makes Larry O. Irresistible to me, I always want to drug Joan Fontaine in Monte, get with Maxim and if we returned to Manderley I think I would have pushed Danvers out of the window. If only George Fortiscue Maximilian De Winter had been as flexible as Larry himself..
Leonardo Da Vinci
Vincent Van Gogh
F Scott Fitxgerald
Actually on rewatch it is CLEARLY part of the script to some extent and unbelievable for the time(?), but watch on slo-mo and it looks more like something is going on and there's a quick cut.
The Sinatra character is very effete and gay seeming but both are uber alpha males IRL obviously.
Even pre-glory years Frank is, of course, brilliant. The best supreme multi-talent other than BABS, and well Kelly and Judy.
I LOVE iconic classic The Manchurian Candidate but not sure if Frank's Oscar was Maffia-assisted!
You left me out, r54, and I'm like the hottest 20th century gay eva!
Lindsay Buckingham in the 70s or 80s
Robert Plant in the 70s
Michael Hutchence in the 80s
OMG r57, the ONE thing Golden Age shits all over post-70s cinema is in the scripts - well and the direction of course. NEVER bettered and always read between the lines. It's like comparing Oscar Wilde to Twilight.
I wish I was better versed in all this as the likes of Cassablanca, Brief Encounter et al were never bettered.
I have most of my knowledge of this from The Celluloid Closet. I can't really do most b&w, but LOVE getting to see the theatrical reissues.
God forgive me, but your son's sort of hot.
So, yes, Jesus.
Maybe James Dean, but I'd make shower first. Actually, that goes for the first two, as well.
Henry Cavill during the time he filmed The count of Monte Cristo. I was only 13 but we would have been perfect for each other.
Bruce and Brandon Lee
A young William Dafoe
Paul Newman in 1960s
Sal Mineo, gay, handsome, and fun.
This is just the musician's list. If OP’s time travel thing works out I'll make other lists.
Pretty much in descending order:
Jimmy Page and Robert Plant (same time)
David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) Tho he’s looking really good as he ages so maybe if OP would just hook me up with an intro to him.
Michael Hutchence (INXS)
Trent Reznor (early days)
David Lee Roth
Eddie Van Halen
Morrissey (or maybe all of the Smiths back in the day)
and finally, Carl Jung.
Jung's at the bottom of the list because if I saw him before I had my chance with the others he'd 'fix' me and I couldn't be a huge slut pig with the other guys.
Billy Haines. His blowjobs were supposed to be spectacular.
And actually, Ramon Novarro was hot in the early 30s.
And Tony Dow.
And Douglas Fairbanks Jr in the 30s, because I'm mad about the boy.
both circa 1938
Pre-carb Cary Elwes.
Agree with Chris Cornell very much.
Anyway, back to the more traditionally pleasant featured movie stars.
Monty Clift seems one of the most beautiful gays ever.
But not that I'm obsessed and hornier than a rabbit in heat, I must return once again to proto-Nadal assed Kelly..
I was already obsessed with this unbelievably beautiful gay faced specimen but couldn't BELIEVE what I was seeing with one of the few pics I missed off his helpful BUTT tumblr (the 40s didn't have THAT). I thought stuff that raw and gay never happened then.
And I NEVER expected that to be Frank (hardly ugly himself obviously but being up against against Gene is tough). I read it was Gene who pursued him. Wtf.
Perma-ass exposer he is (geared to women then?) I never expected a guy to blatantly attempt to dry fuck his ass into oblivion captured on camera. A best picture nominee indeed!
Just as I thought before I re-analysed in forensic detail: the aptly named GENE walks in with a rare lapse into gay voice, method actor extraordinaire Frank sits crotch covered with a perma grin waiting for him to come over to sit on the couch as he knows what’s coming up.
Genie bends over practically in his face in tight tucked in attire of the era to pick up the phone and Frankie gets a GOOD close check of *that* FUCKING HEAVENLY HOLED ASS and then before Gene gets to even sit down is right in there with his hand on the couch blocking Gene in who has his ass faced to his dick with how close Frank is.
SINatra has his hand all over the ass and leans over him for a good bit twice getting a better position each time, ignores and swats off the annoying kid and I think even attempts a subtle thrust or two and is in a near drooling orgasmic trance throughout and raises eyebrow at the end.
It's done so well, subtle and old skool “from the waist up” though that it looks like a joke and only the most tuned in men would notice it was real as Frank does it completely in character so it is a comedy but real moment captured on film.
It seems like a satire of a gay leaning person playing straight with a strict hetero going gay. And I just can't believe how good Frank is. That shot must have been set up for him by the director as Gene did not seem amused! :D That is the best comedy moment.
We know about Brando, but for me this must be the ultimate example that real men fuck other men. Never discussed but very common and natural (particularly with VGL effete pretty boys with amazing asses). Such a revelation!
* geared to women back then. The girls will be his biggest fans and they LOVE guys asses but Kelly in his era is really an odd case.
OK, er, so that is the ultra slow mo version lol. It is a LOVELY moment regardless and plays as a nice VERY homoerotic moment. *embarrassed* They'd hardly do much with a kid but it's so sweet. I know about some very early movies having guys be affectionate and kiss but THIS is something else.
But watch him check his ass and get all up close and personal.. it's really funny how subtle it is and you can't tell how real it is but that DAMN tumblr photo suggests Frank is in heaven. It's Gene Kelly!
All 4 Beatles, 1966.
Fellas..if you want to keep your ass in top condition like Gene's...try roller skating.
My God...tap dancing on skates...was there anything this man couldn't do?
