As you know, my mother watched marathons of old-Hollywood movie reruns on TV, and dragged me into it with her. After a while, I grew to like them myself (though it took me probably the 6th time of watching it to fully appreciate Gone with the Wind).
Here are some of my favorite actors (and the best looking out of the favorites) in no particular order.
Clark Gable: If you can get past the ears (they really do stick out) and the mustache (I’m not a fan in general of facial hair), he has to-die-for cheekbones and dimples. And he’s THE Rhett Butler. Enough said.
Robert Taylor: He looks different without his mustache, right? A young Robert Taylor. He’d be considered good looking in any age. One of my highschool classmates looked a lot like him, at least back then. I associate him mainly with Waterloo Bridge. He was such a dashing military man.
Gary Cooper: Look at those deep dimples. Those eyelashes! And he’s so tall to boot! If only he wasn’t so skinny…
Cary Grant: It took me a while to like Cary Grant, and for the most part I don’t really like his acting—he always seems so stilted and precise and has a funny way of talking. But as I’ve read more about him as a person, I grew to like him more as an actor.
Gregory Peck: another tall one. I particularly like him in To Kill a Mockingbird and Roman Holiday. The only thing I don’t like is that he always seems so serious in his roles and off-screen (hence I picked a picture of him where he’s not).
