123, 125, 127,not sure if you are the same person or not. I'd also like to know what it is to "receive proportions" did you mean propositions?
I think there is a misunderstanding of what I stated and that was probably my fault. I was tired and supposed to be sleeping so I could go to work in some semblance of a decent mental state the next day.
The story someone tells about Confidential is true, they never outed Tyrone Power, and the detective that worked for them, Fred Otash, wrote about Power and Anita Ekberg in his book. As far as the Gilmore book, I have no reason to doubt that.
As far as Lana, again, I could be wrong, but she never said she thought he liked guys, and never said he was not aggressive sexually. I read Lana's book. They liked to cuddle. They didn't cuddle instead of having sex. They did both. Tyrone was a very sensual man and I'm sure that's so. All I have ever read was that Lana didn't think the rumors were true, and she said on TV that "when he was with me, he was all man." We know gays are men, of course, but she meant the man-woman thing. Tyrone (again, this is what Cesar's friend told me, take it for what you will) was very aggressive sexually with women, less aggressive sexually with men, but if he met anyone of either sex that he wanted to be with, he didn't hide his interest to them. There's a story that at a party of Lana's he chased Corinne Calvet all over the place until Lana casually pressed a hot coffee pot into her flesh.
He indeed had an affair with Robin Thomas, Diana's brother, and I guess that's where his wanting to help out Diana came from. That and he was extremely grateful to Diana's stepmother for opening some doors for him in the theater. He wasn't just involved with Robin. He was expected to attend Robin's mother's weekly salons, and he became involved with a woman he met at one. Robin changed a great deal, he was a very troubled person, and he died in the '40s. Gavin Lambert made it sound as if Robin committed suicide after Tyrone went to Hollywood. Not true, it was years and lovers later.
What I said was that this friend of Cesar's thought that for Tyrone, being with men was a break from the pressures of his everyday life, not that he had sex with men when he was under pressure. He was always under pressure as is any film star who is working a lot and supporting various people and organizations. He could put all that aside when he was in a dalliance, whereas when he was with a woman, to whom he was either married, wanted to marry him, was pregnant with his child or whatever, he could not.
You are asking in essence in another part of your post how he got away with it and wasn't he frightened. I think if it was as Scotty says and Arce says, he would have been exiled and demoted to B movies by Zanuck. I think it was far more discreet and far more underground than is described. Some of it is true but remember films were his full-time job, not sex. He churned out a lot of movies, attended a lot of parties and premieres. What I did say, again what I was told is that in the beginning he did nothing but let guys blow him.
I don't believe Tyrone himself, though I didn't know him, had issues with his sexuality or with sleeping with anything that moved. I gather that he was a very complex individual who kept his life compartmentalized and quiet. Cesar said he never answered questions about his love life. I think his wives knew pretty much everything but his lovers, male and female, got a blank stare if they asked questions.
Scotty is embellishing these stories. I have to agree about the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, that whole thing is insane. I would also be interested in Irene Selznick's quote about Kate being gay, although I do believe Kate was gay or bi. Whether she needed Scotty for 150 dates is another matter. I say, enjoy the book but take it with a huge box of salt.
