I'm glad you didn't include a photo of him from BEHIND THE CANDELABRA (which was a nice performance by him).

While we're on the subject of Matt Dillon, he also appeared in other movies based on S.E. Hinton books besides The Outsiders. Rumble Fish and Tex were also movies that starred Dillon based on S.E. Hinton books.

Hinton had a crush on Matt and who can blame her?

I'm watching Ramon Novarro in PAGAN.  Talk about male beauty!  I've seen some of his flicks before but this one really shows off his extremely handsome and expressive face (wonderful smile, too) and great body.  There's a shot near the beginning where Ramon is reclining and the camera starts at his feet and moves upward showing off his legs and torso.  I don't think I've ever seen a male filmed like this before (at least in a classic-era film). Being pre-code (1929) he talks about appreciating God in the beautiful natural outdoors instead of in a hot church on Sunday.

 

Looked him up on Wiki and was so sorry to read how his life ended.  He did have a great career in early Hollywood. 

Ramon Navarro was both beautiful and memorable in the very first "Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ".

 

Supposedly, a more-than-permissible nude version of the film exists, but, to this day, it has never surfaced.

 

Ramon Navarro wanted a film career that included a lot more singing.

 

In his later years, re-capturing his native Mexican accent, he gave a superb performance in a classic episode of "Bonanza".

I absolutely agree. River was one of the those actors who was good no matter what role he played. That's why I liked to watch him and his movies.

 

My favorite River movies are Stand By Me, Running on Empty, and My Own Private Idaho. Stand By Me is clearly the best of the three movies I listed, and if you haven't seen it yet, I recommend you do. You won't regret it.

 

"Stand By Me" is a classic but he River breaks your heart in "My Own Private Idaho"

Such a tragic loss - he was a very gifted actor not just a pretty face
