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).

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.

by Anonymousreply 5110/16/2013

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.

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!

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.

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)

Jim Morrison

David Gahan

Ian Curtis

Nick Cave

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.

David Bowie

Chris Cornell

Michael Hutchence (INXS)

Lenny Kravitz

Trent Reznor (early days) Jared Leto Jeff Buckley Roger Daltry Billy Squier David Coverdale


Jakob Dylan

David Byrne

Kurt Cobain

David Lee Roth

Richie Sambora Eddie Van Halen Morrissey (or maybe all of the Smiths back in the day)

Elvis Costello

Billy Idol

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.

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!

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!
