He was hot in those Smokey films.

Way sexier than Burt Reynolds.

Very sexy man...RIP!

He was by far the sexiest Tarzan for my money. How my young loins burned for him in his loin cloth.

I always watched his Tarzan movies carefully for the scenes when he'd get physical either with some animal or a person. It never failed that his loin cloth would flap up and you'd get a good look at that well packed basket underneath.

Yes, he was one of the most gorgeous Tarzans'!

He was the most ridiculously handsome man back in the day. And his Tarzan made me sweat bullets. He and Robert Conrad were the stuff dreams are made of.

There were long time rumors about him and Burt. He was also in The Longest Yard with him.

Pure man meat. When His Tarzan movies where shown as a kid I would be so embarrassed - couldn’t watch with the family as I obviously wanted to lick the tv screen!

by Anonymousreply 15February 6, 2021 6:15 AM

I'd watch his films, along with Ron Ely, in secret, just before my teen years. Damn, even then, I wanted a man!

If Cliff Gorman had been beefcake.

Terrible actor, all man.

That picture at R10 looks like the young man is about to pull down his loincloth to give him a blowjob.

R11 -- we have the same thoughts....

He might have been a good James Bond. Looks a bit like both Connery and George Lazenby.

by Anonymousreply 25February 6, 2021 3:08 PM

He was truly gorgeous.

In Tarzan-related news, TCM has been showing the Tarzan serials from the '30s on Saturday mornings. Tarzan is played by "Herman Brix," who later changed his name to Bruce Bennett and became Mr. Mildred Pierce. He had a bangin' body for that era. (He had been an Olympic shot-putter.)

Was he the gay?

by Anonymousreply 27February 6, 2021 5:49 PM

My absolutely deepest, most consuming, intensest gayling crush. The first Tarzan movie I saw him in had a kid in it as a sidekick/ward kind of thing (if I remember right) All I know is I wanted to murder him and take his place.

Mike was so incredibly handsome and the body was just superb.

I need to rent a cottage on some rocky cliffside by a turbulent sea and go into mourning for a few weeks. With all my heart, I still love that man.

Who did he fuck? Was he married?

by Anonymousreply 29February 7, 2021 7:20 AM

Gaylings wet dream - I couldn’t watch him on TV in front of my family as my thirst for him would have been all over my face ( like his cum).

by Anonymousreply 30June 6, 2021 9:44 PM

r30 He certainly helped me masturbate...

by Anonymousreply 31June 6, 2021 9:45 PM

He didn't get married until he was in his late 40s, and he has his wife had no kids. And get this - he met his wife when she was a stuntwoman on one of the Smokey and the Bandit movies.

Sounds like a gay-lesbian marriage o' convenience to me.

Mike Henry was before my time. I did not know him. I don't believe it would be appropriate to offer my condolences.

R25 I thought the same thing when I saw the photo a R23 He's a combo of Connery and Lazenby.

r39 Possibly given the stress of recent family tragedys in the past 2 years. ron Ely is definitely another one worth masturbating over.

Not only did he not skip leg day, he made it his bitch.

His obit reminded me he played Hot Lips' husband on one episode of MASH

by Anonymousreply 47June 7, 2021 6:19 PM

He was once on Newhart too, and showed that he had a flair for comedy.

Between him and Rbt Conrad... well, that's where I wanted to be.

R32 The obituary at "Variety" reports that Henry is also survived by a daughter, "Shannon." Also, he may have been late-40s when they married, but the wife is 21 years younger.
