My eclectic taste runs deeply. Very deeply. This will likely be a surprise.
One of the disturbing joys of growing older is watching those you adore age. Worse still is watching them die. What does this have to do with being attractive? Some of the men I have found most attractive have left for the Happy Hunting Ground. These are in no particular order.
Let’s start with a live one.
No? Maybe one or two where you can place the television series?
Surely, you remember Maverick. How about this one?
Even at 85, I still have a soft spot for his expressions, laugh and great voice.
Another octogenarian on my Mmm list has made an appearance on M3 more than once. The first is one of his calling cards on one of my calling cards. The second happens to be my ring back tone. You may even have noticed his weekly appearances in the last, say, year.
Here is a photo from around the time color film was invented.
Since everyone in the next picture is dead, you have a one in four shot of guessing which one I think was the sexiest:
If you guessed Dan Blocker, let me kick you in the shin. If you guessed Michael Landon, you do not know I do not like to look men eye-to-eye. If you guessed Pernell Roberts, you almost got it. Who guessed it was the Canadian with the great voice?
Now, if you had shown me this picture of the ugly duckling…
I never would have guessed he would have grown up to be this sexy thing.
Well, maybe. Instead, he blossomed around 50. Some of his best voice work was with Disney-Pixar and as the voice of Chevrolet after his 60th birthday.
You may remember when his hair was this color. He was cute.
So, maybe you remember it darker when he starred with Cher in Mask. This is an improvement.
Fortunately for everyone, he stopped shaving off his mustache and laid off the Grecian Formula for the last 20ish years.
What do they all have in common besides 25+ years on me? Great voices. To me, being sexy is not about a boyish face or a terrific physique or even mathematical beauty. Lively eyes, a great smile, confidence and voice do more for me than any pin up ever will.
Would you have guessed any of the above? Which Cartwright did you pick? I promise not to laugh when you tell me why.
