I love Old Hollywood.  The movies seem more carefree, more clever, and more romantic.  They sure don’t make films like those anymore!  My friend Julie and I were watching Teacher’s Pet with Clarke Gable and Doris Day recently, and this blog post popped into my mind.  Not only do they no make movies like Old Hollywood anymore, it  seems like the attractive qualities of those leading men have fallen by the wayside as of late.

Julie and I would like to bring back the “Old Hollywood Man,”  Or at least have guys take a few notes from Old Hollywood’s Most Attractive Men….

I picked 7 (I know they are way more!) gents that demonstrate very attractive traits that most guys don’t posses anymore, but should!  There were far more than 7 options, so I’m hoping for some great feedback from you!

THE PERFECT MAN

The perfect man would posses:

 1. Paul Newman’s looks- This man is the definition of dreamy.  From his sultry lips, his lean, toned body, and his blue, blue eyes, this man has the ability to make any lady swoon.

2. Howard Keels Boldness-  There is nothing more attractive than a man who goes after what he wants- especially when it comes to a lady.  Today’s society has created this passive, “sensitive” type of guy who, let’s face it, is wimpy!  What girl wants to convince a guy to date her- it’s so much better to be persued!  Now, Adam Pontipee may be a little barbaric with his “bless her beautiful hide” business, but it is attractive all the same!

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

3. Gene Kelly’s Moves- Every girl wants a guy who can sweep her off her feet, and I don’t think there’s anyone who can do it quite like Gene Kelly.  He makes

dancing look so athletic, so manly,  and dude, he can tap dance on roller skates!  (I love this clip because it’s so refined and show’s off Gabey shy character as he’s trying to win Miss Turnstyles)

Franky the Crooner

4. Frank Sinatra’s Voice- The perfect man should have a crooners voice and Frank is just the man.  There’s something sensitive and gentle about his voice, and we all know a man who can sing goes up about 10 points in the attractive category!    (I just watched On the Town- so that’s why there’s another clip from it. )

Funny Guy Jerry Lewis

5. Jerry Lewis humour- Let’s face it- there is nothing better than a guy who can make you laugh!  This clip is from one of my favourite movies, Cinderfella and it makes me wish Jerry was my fella!

The King of Cool- Steve McQueen

6. Steve McQueen’s cool- There is something about Steve McQueen that is so sexy.  It’s his strong, yet cool, self that looks really good on a motorcycle and always seems to save the day. 

7. William Holden’s confidence- I don’t know what it is about

William goes after Audrey

William, but whenever he’s on screen, he just commands attention.  He doesn’t need to talk, he just has this suave, self-assured nature about him.  Yes, he usually plays the cynical and sometimes playboy-like characters, but his versatility shines through and he always oozes confidence. 


So boys, do something that guys don’t do anymore.  Dance in the rain, sing her a song, or a even just learn a line from a movie!  Google it!
