I LUST After Men From Long Ago
I keep viewing a video on youtube that shows the opening of Miracle On 34th Street (1947). Kris Kringle walks into a small shop where a man is setting up the Reindeer display for Christmas. The man is SO good looking. I looked him up. He's be about 103 years old now.
I watch a video on the NY Worlds Fair from 1964. They show these two HANDSOME men chasing after these two woman in the park. The man are SO good looking I imagine myself in a threesome with them. They would be maybe 80 years old now. WHY do I lust after men from the DISTANT past?

OP, do you mean the man at around 40 seconds in?
Good lord. While I don't think that was worth the keystrokes to search on YouTube.... knock yourself out. Whatever makes you happy.

OP, I can relate. Men were encouraged in good grooming habits and a more elevated sense of personal presentation than often seen today, even with men on the lower end of the economic curve. Achieving maturity as quickly as possible, rather than perpetuating adolescence, was also supported. These qualities build attraction for me from the inside out, even if a man doesn’t fit a stereotypical ideal of beauty.

OP, I know what you mean. Every day I watch "Adam-12" on MeTV and want to do all kinds of naughty things to Martin Milner, who I thought was so hot then.
|by Anonymous||reply 6||02/20/2021|
R6-Me too. I find him MUCH more attractive than Kent McCord. Martin Milner was SO good looking in Valley Of The Dolls (1967).

I'm lusting after 20 year old Warren Beatty (looking rather doughy in unflattering shorts) in "Suspicion' in 1957 with David Wayne.

Men used to be leaner then.
Or maybe the bowtie?)

The two HANDSOME guys in the Worlds Fair video look like Ivy Leaguers.. Has anyone watched that video? Do you agree with me on their handsomeness - especially the blond guy.
|by Anonymous||reply 17||02/20/2021|
Yes, indeed. The bowtie guy is CUTE. If I were back in 1947 ( no I'm not that old ,1947 is WAY before I was born) I would take him out on a date to the AUTOMAT- I guess I'm a cheap date.

R20- Yes. Those are the two handsome guys I was referring to. It's sexist the way they were chasing after those two EXCESSIVELY feminine women in the park.

Dear OP, I think a psychologist would suggest we have have Daddy issues.
We deliberately yearn for the unobtainable as a way of unsatisfying an unobtainable goal.
I'm sure there are plenty of men who available in the here and now who may be a little more obtainable.

With Covid no one is attainable for me. I have not had sex in 11 months.
When I was a young boy in the 1970's I would watch old black and white episodes of LASSIE. I had a MAJOR crush on the cute blond boy Timmy, but even then I knew he was unattainable because that little boy was gone and he was all grown up.

There is a movie on Amazon called 1992. It's set then but it was made recently. The older guy 27ish-is JUST my type. Slim and good looking and kind of ethnic. Has anyone seen this short (20mins) film?

you don't have to deal with their tatoos for starters
|by Anonymous||reply 30||Last Monday at 6:19 PM|
I guess in 1992 tattoos were not en vogue.
The watchmen doesn't look 1992 he looks more like 1982.

It seems that every other guy in his 30s/40s today looks and acts like Comic Book Guy from the Simpsons (the Scuzzball look.) I had to think of that scene from”Sunset Boulevard” where Norma Desmond accosts Joe Gillis for “always wearing that sports jacket”. By today’s he looks like he’s attending a wedding.

He had a really nice body too R6. He was shirtless in some movie and I was so surprised because he always seemed (Adam-12) kind of dweeby to me.

Another blast from the past. I'm watching a video on youtube of John Sebastian and The Lovin Spoonful singing Do You Believe In Magic at a live performance in 1965. He was a good looking guy back then.

I would imagine that gay guys would have had a difficulty time dealing with all of the hygienically challenged men back then.

OP, that guy in the bow tie fixing the reindeer was actor Robert Gist. He was a well known character actor. Miracle On 34th Street was his screen debut in 1947.
Here's a pic of him. More interesting, do you recognize his wife? It's none other than DL fave Agnes Moorehead!
|by Anonymous||reply 46||Last Tuesday at 9:56 AM|
Someone posted this pic of their old family member, I think from Idaho or somewhere. I wouldn't mind at all sharing a cabin with him, just the two of us in the wild. I mean, if he did all the work and all I had to do was provide sexual services.
|by Anonymous||reply 47||Last Tuesday at 10:04 AM|
R46- If he was married to Agnes Moorehead that makes it more likely (in my opinion) the he was GAY.

I agree with Polly Bergen. This British male model from 1959 was "beautiful."

The sailor at 2:15 -- terrible capture, so watch it when it's on TCM. He's in one other scene and he's just marvelous to look at.

Okay, please don't laugh, but I find a lot of the guest stars on the old "Perry Mason" series very attractive. So naturally masculine. I love the strong, silent type like the detective who replaced ailing Lt. Tragg.

I have lusted after young Marlon Brando, always wondered what sex would have been like with Oscar Wilde, and fell in love with young, slender Freddie Mercury's lips and Persian beauty. Yes, men in the past were hot and natural and flawed and that was sexy.

My tastes were set in stone in the 1970's when all the men on tv had SLIM, NATURAL bodies. No muscles, tattoos, piercings, rings etc.
Randolph Mantooth was my slim DREAMBOAT in the 1970's and the main reason I watched the show.
