It's a very "real" moment in the film.

 

In "Goodbye Again", Yves Montand caresses Perkins' chin in a drunk scene.

 

Perkins had the kind of "allure" that could appeal to both women and men.

 

In "Goodbye Again", Ingrid Bergman wanted to have an actual affair with him.

 

But Perkins just could not do it.

 

He did not become a heterosexual until the age of 39 when he met Victoria Principal.

Perkins had that boyish charm which must have lured both his female and male co-stars.

There is a scene in which Thanos says goodby to Alexis by kissing him on the neck- Perkins gives Vallone a look which goes beyond a father/son bond- maybe I'm just reading subtext

Someone must be a fan of the new "Hawaii FiveO"

I've only seen a few episodes of the new Hawaii Five-O, but I admire both Alex and Scott. They are such beautiful men. Remember when I mentioned them in the Handsome Men Who did Not become Movie Stars thread? We talked about them quite a bit in that thread.

Into the Blue (2005)

 

Samantha Nicholson (Jessica Alba) accompanies her gay best friend, Jared (Paul Walker), Jared's lover, Bryce (Scott Caan), and Bryce's new "conquest", Alex (Alex O'Loughlin), on an adventure to find treasure at the bottom of the ocean. It would not be a movie without Bryce having love scenes with both Jared and Alex.

A little too much action, I think, for Bryce.
