*looks around* Hello! I know nobodys posted here for ages but I love the idea of this community and I just joined. *waves* I'm 23 but I've always crushed on actors/singers from the past, especially the 1950s. (Any '50s fans around?)(:
My main guy is this one..James Darren. I've had a massive crush since I was in grade school, ever since I first saw his films and tv series. Gorgeous! *dreamy sighs*

Today's candidate
Stewart Granger as Allan Quartermain in King Solomon's Mines. He's got grey streaks above his ears, and he looks great in a light linen suit and in hunting gear (and of course that gets more raggedy as things go on). Serious tan as well. And a sarcastic eyebrow.

Bix remembered...

Bill Bixby
January 22 1934 - November 21 1993

Please take a moment to add a sig to the petition to add Bix to the Emmy Hall of Fame. Even though he is no longer with us, he worked diligently his entire 30 year career in television, and starred in some of the most memorable, and quality, tv series ever. It only needs a signature.

The Naked and the Dead Article

Uber-short intro:My name is Grace, I'm 15, I adore Hugh Laurie, Winston Churchill, and other assorted persons with palpable auras of doom.
 Who also happen to be (a) dead, (b) older than me by 10+ years, or (c) fictional.

I found this article a couple months ago and thought that this community might enjoy it. Have fun!

Hi! My Name's Renn, and I'll be sixteen in nine days. Like the rest of you, I have a thing for guys that are way too old (and in some cases, dead,) for me. It's good to find people who understand! :D

John Wilkes Booth:

This one started it all. One moment I'm watching a Sondheim musical about presidential assassins, (which, incedentally, is why I blame broadway) and the next, I'm fantasizing about John Wilkes Booth. Yes I have issues. (Actually, he was quite the ladies man. When he died, he had photos of five different girlfriends with him!

Hugh Laurie.

He's british. He's hot. He plays House MD. He's also 3 times my age... Fuck.

Oscar Wilde

This is my favorite person in the world. Brilliant, cute, gay (and I loves me some slash!) He also had pritty hair. The perfect guy. Seriously now.

Blimey, there is sanity in this world, after all! Ah, here one can express one's love for....the list (sorely edited, at that) @_@
Peter Lorre - Actor in: The Beast with Five Fingers, M, Stranger on the Third Floor, The Maltese Falcon, Arsenic and Old Lace, Mad love...this man was brilliant no matter what he was in! Brilliant, passionate, and gorgeous... with a voice to die for *sigh*
Jeremy Brett (I'm so happy to see so many Brett lovers here! ^_^) - most of you already know his many assets, but just to read myself type, he's brilliant, passionate, and gorgeous....with a voice to die for. Yes, I like my men to have certain attributes :) I used to think Basil Rathbone the best Sherlock until my eyes befell this gorgeous creature. Brett put his sanity on the line for Holmes...he really was the Holmes that no man was, will, or could ever be.
Rex Harrison - need I say it again?
Richard Harris - same....
Toshiro Mifune - Oh lord, yes, the same...
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - I fell in love with him at the tender age of 11 and have waited ever since for that damned time-machine to be invented. Old flames never die :-P
Napoleon Bonaparte - I fell for him at the age of 14, he's handsome (especially when he was younger) and a brilliant strategist.
Ioan Gruffud - He's not very old but damned if he didn't come straight from the past ^_^ Gorgeous, passionate, and brilliant.
Ludwig von Beethoven - Oh the hair, the passion, the music, the angry angsty eyes...how can one resist him?
Pablo Sarasate - One of the world's most renowned violinists (Sherlock Holmes even liked him :-P), and pretty good looking to boot.
Basil Rathbone -  The profile; the voice; the angry, haughty, sexy, cruel, kind, evil eyes; jerky yet smooth movements, his poise and elegance...he has it all!
Lionel Barrymore - The kinda guy you know you could just sit and be with, that's a bit of a gift.
Peter Cushing - Oh my, the tantalizing gaze...though usually, I think it's supposed to be an evil glare. He's too tantalizing to have a really evil glare :-P Another great voice.
Christopher Lee - Superb voice! Well, he's hot too....and such a passionate actor!
Alan Rickman - Drool worthy to say the least. When I saw him play Severus Snape I didn't expect to spit out my soda and gawk at the screen with mad lust crazed eyes, but I did. He's great in Sense and Sensibility too. That man has perfected the smirk!
Micheal Caine - Saw him in Sleuth with Laurence Olivier. Boy struck me dumb, he was actually performing damned good right next to Olivier....that takes skill, my friends!
Stanley Baker - Suffice to say that I have the name of his character from Zulu (John Rouse Meriat Chard) etched into my desk and I always leave it uncovered so I can see it at all times. Brilliant, gorgeous, and a voice like sweet honey.
Paul Newman - Dead sexy, good actor, swell man. He's got charm oozing out of his ears :)
Bela Lugosi - Such a voice...
enunciating every syllable and then just whipping through the rest of the words like they were so many dust particles...he didn't need regular words, he could be babbling nonsense but you know exactly what he's saying through his eyes and body language and tone of voice. Ah, he takes my breath away every time I see Dracula or the Raven. Elegant, intelligent, charming, and handsome...*sigh*
Derrick De Marney - His name is rather obscure but watch Young and Innocent by Hitchcock - this fellow's the male lead and he's the perfect man. Tell me you aren't dying to lie in a muddy ditch with stab wounds all over your body just so a shoe lace that used to be his doesn't get dirty...just try...
Peter O'Toole - Lawrence of Arabia says it all, I think ^_^
Russel Crowe - Suave....handsome....smooh but gravely voice to die for....Master and Commander...:-D
Hugo Weaving - He baited me in the Matrix and hooked me in Lord of the Rings. Very nice and distinct voice, unique character, and good looking.
Freddy Bartholomew - I hesitated to list him, for the films I like him in he's less than legal age. I was in love with him when I was 10 though, so I think it's alright :-D Now, he is the cutest kid who ever did live and to this day, my favorite child actor.
Robert Newton - The gruff and vile Bill Sikes in Oliver Twist....wonderful performance....they don't make villains like they used to either :'(
King Louis XI of France... yes, the Spider King. It's told that he was an unattractive man and somehow, that draws me towards him even more. He unified a broken France and he was ugly and didn't mind being among the peasantry, was strong willed and stubborn, cold, cunning, and bloody squished people with a wit as sharp as a blade. Actually reminds me of Severus Snape...and Alan Rickman in turn...but I must remember that Alan's hot and Louis was not ;)

Yay! I love the idea of this community. My name's Kate, or Katey, if you'd like. I'm 17 (soon to be 18) and from Vermont.

I have a thing for voices. If a man has got an incredible voice, whether speaking or singing voice, I am all over the floor. Hence why some of my favorites are Alan Rickman, Jeremy Brett, etc. I <3 Jeremy Brett's voice super much. AHH and Jeremy Irons and Liam Neeson!

Others I adore include Cary Grant (he always seems to have this smirk on his face, I love his subtle humour), Clark Gable ("It Happened One Night" is simply hilarious), Jimmy Stewart (it's his boyishness), Gregory Peck (certainly one of the most attractive men, EVER). Fred Astaire, Frank Sinatra, John Lennon, George Harrison, Ralph Fiennes, despite that scandal with the stewardess. I'm spacing at the moment, of course, but I there's more, of course. Oh, right, I almost forgot, Michael Caine. I don't know why, but yes. Michael Caine.

I also adore three-piece suits. Something about waistcoats, they make anybody look automatically more sexy.

Edited to add pics + some people I forgot to mention earlier. lol.

Wow finally I've found a community full of people who get me. It just seems that my friends don't understand that they really don't make 'em like they used too. I mean would you rather have some guy who has his pants around the middle of his butt or a guy who is polite, knows how women should be treated and sexy as hell? lol.

Ok my name is Kali, I'm 18 and live in Oregon(US). There is a huge number of guys that I personally love that my friends will never get, and that cause my parents and grandparents to look at me odly.

1. Dick Van Dyck! It doesn't matter if it was back in his prime or if it's him all grey. He's just sexy.
2. Buddy Holly. What can I say, I dig the glasses?
3. Gregory Peck
4. Dean Martin
5. John Wayne. He's my Hero, lol.
6. Ben Johnson. He was quite the looker when he was young.
7. Paul Newman
8. Sidney Poitier
9. Morgan Freeman. I admitt that it's really his voice that gets me.
10. And the # 10 spot is tied between Robert Redford and Gene Hackman

Oh I really need to say Christopher Plummer. He is a great actor and what a guy should aspire to be. I still say Dick Van Dyck can kick his butt any day, I mean look at those legs. n_n

I'm sure as soon as I post this I'll be like, 'OH WAIT I FORGOT Such-and-Such'.

So yeah, Hi.

I am completely in love with Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Gene Kelly, Charlie Chaplin...oh the list just goes on and on :)

Oh, by the way, I'm Megg, 21, from New York State and of course I am in love with vintage men!

Peter O'Toole

They really don't make 'em like that anymore.

Hi, I just joined the community, I'm AJ. 21, male, mostly Canadian.

I tracked down a copy of Graham Chapman's "A Liar's Autobiography (Volume VI)", and have to say that I am in love with that man. In addition to being completely and utterly insane, a member of Monty Python, and had the balls to use his fame and fortune to help the gay movement in a very hostile England way back when, he was someone I would rather like to have made violent love to, if given a time machine, and I suppose a plane ticket to London. Or does this time machine bend space AND time.....

Hi, I'm Mar. 19 from Detroit. And I love some old men.

Here is only a few:

#1 Clint Eastwood. I have been in love with him since I saw Fistfull of Dollars when I was 2.

#2 Bon Scott. I am a huge AC/DC fan, and he was of course the sexiest of them all. Too bad he had to die 7 years before I was even born. His stage presence is fab.'

#3 George Peppard. He is the man. I'd do him.

Ummm....I know there is more...but they are my tops. :)

I've finally found a community full of people my age who won't make fun of me for my obsessing over old/dead men!  Take a deep breath, you're in for quite a dive:

I'm Ashley, 17 going on 18, in Ohio.  Let me give you all my long list of loves, more or less in order from #1:
Basil Rathbone: Must I give reasons?  The talent, the incredible looks... I often find myself drawing him when I have nothing better to do.  He is the PERFECT Holmes.  In looks, at least.   My favorite movies are the ones from the mid30s- Anna Karenina, Love from a Stranger (<3), Captain Blood
Craig Ferguson: Come on.  All Scottish guys are hot.  And he can sing, too.
Hector Berlioz: Ever heard of him?  19'th century composer with AMAZING hair.  He cried at the slightest emotion in music, and wrote AMAZING everythings.  Listen to Symphonie Fantastique
Harry James: The trumpet god.  I play trumpet, but don't want to anymore for a while after listening to him.  Good looking, too.  Watch him in Bathing Beauty...with Basil Rathbone!  2 for the price of 1.
Jeremy Brett: It's all been said, I think.  I read somewhere that he practiced his R's every day because of a speech problem that caused him to not be able to say them properly.  But before I read that, I commented on how beautiful they sounded.  I am known to rewind and turn up the volume just to hear him say something with an R in it.  Best Holmes scriptwise.
Vincent Price: piercing voice and looks, etc. etc.
Paul McCartney: Macca Lives.  There's a weakness in my heart for fellow lefty-guitarists.  Not many of us aren't converted to the dark side.  My favorite of the 4 Beatles
George Harrison: Best songwriter in his post-Beatles career.  My mentor/friend looked almost exactly like him when he was younger...
Sean Connery: he's Sean Connery.  SIR Sean Connory.
Robert Sean Leonard: Introduced to me in Swing Kids during German class last year
Hugh Laurie: Thank you Nancy, for getting me stuck on House. I've now moved on to Jeeves and Wooster, as well.
Rex Harrison: the voice.
Alan Rickman: He started this all.  My friend and I wrote letters to him back right after HP 1 came out, while he was still reply to fan mail with signed pictures.  HA!
Michael Crawford: number 2.  Begged and begged my mom to take me to NYC to see Dance of the Vampires.   She did!  I'll never forget that... we drove out from Ohio the last day before Thanksgiving break.  School was cancelled because of a level 3 snow emergency, but we went anyway.  The stage manager was going to let me go backstage and meet him and get things signed if I stayed for the evening show, too, but we couldn't, and he slept between shows so I lost the chance of a lifetime.  While in NY, I made sure to point out the theatre Alan was in the year before.
Eric Idle: Gotta love the Pythons.  He's my favorite.
Christopher Lee: there's a youtube clip of him singing about alcohol.  Yes, singing.
Peter Cushing: my first Holmes, but Basil has taken his place as the best.

When I get around to taking pictures of them, I'll post my drawings of some of the above guys.

They sure don't make them like they used to.
