Who among us doesn`t love those classic movie star leading men? While the new batch of Hollywood hunks are quite eye-catching, there is just something about the old stars. What that special something is I cannot say, but I'm never happier than when I'm plunked down in front of a classic film starring one of these fantastic men. This is my top five. I would love to hear yours! Which classic leading men make your heart beat a little faster?
Bogie just sends me even though he isn`t one of those perfectly chiseled leading men. I think it`s his voice and the way he carries himself. He oozed gruff masculinity that I still find incredibly sensual. While there may be handsomer men on my list, Bogie gets top honors as my #1 classic leading man.
From It Happened One Night to Gone with the Wind, Clark Gable set the bar for romance heroes in my mind. Those eyes . . . that mouth . . . the mustache *fans face* A woman did not stand a chance.
They call Mr. Poitier an icon for a reason. All you have to do is watch just one of his movies and you can see why he is on this list. His wit, good looks, talent, charm, and bearing shine through every role he plays.
Spencer is another leading man who may not have been the prettiest belle at the ball, but that didn`t matter, at least not to me. He had this incredibly sexy self-confident way. And once he began to speak, well, who needs a face like Rock Hudson when Spencer Tracy is acting?
What can I say? Just look at that face. Now close your eyes and let the memories of that voice of Cary`s wash over your senses. *sighs dreamily* They didn`t make too many men easier on the eyes, either in his day or in the years to come.
So, what did you think of my list? If you agree or disagree let me know. Share your picks for your top 5 classic leading men with us!
