Does anyone remember Race Gentry?  He made a few films for Universal in the 1950's and also, I believe, was in a TV  series.  He was discovered by the same man who discovered Rock Hudson.

Handsome guy, but I do not remember him or his films.

 

And only Henry Willson would give such a name to one of his clients.

"Rock is such a beauty

 

Race is easy on the eyes

 

But who would elicit

 

A multitude of sighs?"

Rayban, that would be a tough choice between those two.  Interestingly, Rock and Race were father and son in "The Lawless Breed."  I think his biggest role might be in a Western with Joel McCrea called "Black Horse Canyon".

I think John Garfield is hot in a "tough guy" sort of way. When he plays a bad boy, I can't get enough. Anyone agree?

 

Yes, agree. He's great in UNDER MY SKIN, one of his last pictures, with Micheline Presle.

John Garfield the original sexy brooder - the studio knew how to exploit his blue collar masculine beauty by putting him in all those boxing movies

 

I still have not seen BODY AND SOUL.

That is a great movie- but Garfield's youthful charms and body are on display in  "They Made Me A Criminal" (1938) not only does he play a boxer- but he also goes swimming with the Dead End Kids (?!)

Yeah-- I forgot about that. In the water tank before the sisters from Petticoat Junction started using it.

Mr  Jensen Ackles please

   needs to make the jump to the big screen

Since Jensen Ackles makes $175,000 per episode on "Supernatural", he might not feel the need to transfer to the big screen.
