This is one of those days when I’m trying to make up for the lack of men around here. I only have eyes for one (blush), you can’t hold it against me (blush again)…
Nevertheless, it’s the Season when sweets of all sorts are more than welcomed. Life’s eye candy article about the sexiest men of the 50s, 60s and 70s comes with Marlon Brando in first place. (the story continues right after the jump with more images)
Further on, we meet mr James Dean photographed against a white fence, all dressed in black and looking elsewhere because, you know, strong men don’t look in your face, they look though you…And then there’s Warren Beatty, hidden in the tall grass with yellow flowers all around (because in 1967, flowers were in the air and also because anyone wearing that haircut will hide too).
Steve McQueen leaning on his wife. Because in the privacy of your home you can wear and do just about anything. What? There’s a “Life” photographer taking pictures? That was the shy, incipient stage of the paparazzi era! Hey, look at this young man having a really healthy laugh there! Who’s that? It’s Harry Belafonte, circa 1958; who wished to be known for his art, not his body, however, both the body and the art must keep in shape.
Next there’s Sean Connery, 1955. No need for words. Elvis Presley in one of his usual stage routines, back in 1969. Yeah, he knew he had it…The king of pouts, Mick Jagger, in a 1968 picture alongside his then-girlfriend, Anita Pallenberg.
