Richard Chamberlain

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.

R5, you forgot to mention "hairy."

by Anonymousreply 605/04/2015

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.

Dick was handsome and hairy, but for some reason, he never interested me.

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.

"Kiss me on the mouth - like I was your lover!"

TOO much facial reconstruction.

..."A boy!?!"..."I do not wish it." "Do I look like a God-cursed sodomite?!?"..."Well Lady, my intimate customs do not include boys!"...

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.

R5 R6 And brooding.

He was with Martin Rabbett forever.

by Anonymousreply 1405/04/2015

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.

Chamberlain has a hot shirtless scene in Joy in the Morning

By the looks of R8's photo he is Princess Tinymeat

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.

by Anonymousreply 2005/05/2015

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.

R21 Catfight indeed. Ms. Vince had her moments.

by Anonymousreply 2205/05/2015

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.

Did he get a new partner?

by Anonymousreply 2505/05/2015

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

Is he in good health? He's about 80 now

by Anonymousreply 2705/05/2015

I wish he'd been in Follies!

He and Tab Hunter should do a remake of "Vicious"

by Anonymousreply 2905/05/2015

r27, can't recall name of play, but he was on Broadway in the past six months.

by Anonymousreply 3005/05/2015

He was hot as Ralph de Bricassart.

by Anonymousreply 3105/05/2015

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.

by Anonymousreply 3205/05/2015

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

by Anonymousreply 3305/05/2015

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.

by Anonymousreply 3405/05/2015

He's a theater queen

by Anonymousreply 3505/05/2015

Girls in my class for a couple of years had Dr. Kildare lunch boxes. Somehow just looking at him, even at that young age, I knew. I remember thinking about the girls, dumb bitches.

Chad Everett played Dr.Joe Gannon on "Medical Center" and always showed a bulge in his uniform.

by Anonymousreply 3705/05/2015

After viewing "Lady Caroline Lamb" for the first time back in '85, I couldn't help but thinking that young Prince Rogers Nelson saw hot Mr. Chamberlain in it, as well, and got some ideas...just sayin'...

by Anonymousreply 3803/14/2019

Yes, we tapped it constantly. All of us. He never said no.

by Anonymousreply 3903/14/2019

Another fan of “The Music Lovers” here — bold, audacious filmmaking, and Chamberlain and Glenda Jackson were excellent!

by Anonymousreply 4003/14/2019

His movie career post Kildare, hit and miss?

And now, back to Dick.

by Anonymousreply 4903/14/2019

When he lived in NYC it was rumored that he would cruise MOMA I wanted to go there to see if I could meet him.

by Anonymousreply 5003/14/2019

I thought Richard was dashing as Aramis in the 70s version of The Three Musketeers. This was my favourite film version. Great cast!

Actor Wesley Eure was in a relationship with Chamberlain for a number of years in the 1970s.

by Anonymousreply 5703/15/2019

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!
