He was hot as hell when he was young. Did any of you eldergays tap that back in the day? Any stories?

Dick, as he calls himself, is - or at least was - a DLer himself.

He appeared shirtless on the cover of TV Guide when I was 12 or 13 looking very much like the pic above and I saved it to JO to for a long time. It was a much more innocent time. There was no actual porn available to a horny gay boy out in rural North Carolina back then. Just Life Magazine, the underwear section of the Sears catalog, all those Warner Bros. TV westerns with the obligatory shirtless scenes and reruns of Sea Hunt with Lloyd Bridges.

He was gorgeous in the Thorn Birds. No wonder I wanted to go to the seminary.

You young-uns can't believe his extraordinary popularity as Dr. Kildare in the early 1960s.
I remember every girl in my class wearing Dr. Kildare white smocks to school. Oh how I coveted one!

Vince Edwards as Ben Casey was no slouch either, especially if you were a gay pre-teen who craved tall, dark and handsome.

Never in my life did I realize how hot he was until just now. Thanks op!
I have vague memories of him being cute in the Thorn Birds, but was otherwise not familiar with him or his work.
Of course I just google imaged him and look what I found! Ok, off to have a shower and rub it out now.

Loved that scene on TTB when he was naked on the verandah with the rain pouring down outside and ol' Mary was watching him through the door.

All I remember about Shogun was that scene when a guy knocked him to the ground and peed on him.
Because of the Internet, I now realize that scene may have turned alot of guys on.

He never appeared to be so hairy in his white Dr. Kildare smock so it was quite a surprise when he wore a bathing suit in the famous double episode Tyger Tyger, Burning Bright opposite Yvette Mimieux as a dying Califrnia surfer girl.I can remember her on the cover of Life Magazine posed in an orange bikini and surf board.
They were such a popular couple on the TV screen that they were reunited in a turgid flop feature film called Joy in the Morning, based on the novel by Betty Smith, who wrote A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Lightening didn't strike twice. As a matter of fact, Mimieux's career went nowhere after that.

DYNASTY producers wanted him to play Linda Evan's new love interest; when he declined, they nabbed Rock Hudson for the role. They apparently were determined to have a gay man play the part.

R5: Richard & Vince had a catfight at an 1960s interview & Vince threw an ice cream cone at Richard.
They never spoke again after that.

He's very good (and hot) in The Music Lovers.

Never dated him but met him and knew him well enough to chat in the gym (European Health Spa between Lex and 3rd) at about 58/9th St. My friend Danny ( a dancer) introduced him to his to be long term relationship- cannot remember his name- also a dancer and sort of a smaller clone of Richard. I believe they lasted until 5 or so years ago or something. Nice man, and the dancer boyfriend was a nice fellow too.

I remember getting all hot and bothered about seeing him on the big screen in "Joy in the Morning." He was also in "Petulia," opposite Julie Christie and George C. Scott.

Martin Rabbett was the name of the former partner - they aren't together now. I thought that Richard Chamberlain lived in Hawaii.

It wasn't Broadway r30, it was off off-Broadway in a revival of the David Rabe play Sticks and Bones, about a Viet Nam returning war vet. Chamberlain played the small but important role of the family priest.

I saw him a few years back in "The Heiress" at the Pasadena Playhouse.

He also appeared in an execrable stage version of The Exorcist (in the Max Von Sydow role) at The Geffen Playhouse in LA a few years ago.
The show got terrible reviews but Dick does seem to enjoy his stage work.

I still remember the scene in Centennial when Chamberlain's character foolishly DIDN'T listen to what Robert Conrad's French trapper character told him to do, and ended up getting speared in the shoulder. The wound became infected, and Conrad nonchalantly laid the head of an axe in the fire. Without warning, he tore open Chamberlain's shirt, and laid that red hot axe blade on the festering wound, cauterizing it and saving his life. I was just a kid, and I almost fell out of my chair!
