Sandra Dee is the one that comes to mind for her particular generation...the late 50s/early 60s. Along with Troy Donahue.

TopBilled, great choices. I'm a fan of both, and I preferred Troy Donahue over Tab Hunter. (Tab Hunter I know from his real life role as Anthony Perkins ex, but that's a conversation better suited for a different day.)

who dat? ...she look familiar though ...

If you're asking about the young lady pictured twice right above your question here laffite, that would be two more pictures of Angela Cartwright that The Nipster posted of her, and taken at a few years older than the one I posted of her above.

My first crush ever was no other than Annette but only as a Mouseketeer. After that I totally lost interest. Then came Mary Stone, who may still be  the prettiest girl I ever saw. She once said, in tears, "I have about as much sex appeal as a wet mop." That surprised me because I thought she had a lot going for her. And Sandra Dee. of course. Adored her. Who didn't? Stephanie Powers as she appeared in Experiment of Terror. After that I gave her up, she became too sophisticated. For instance in The Interns, she looked like she did in Terror, but in the sequel she left me cold, she lost her youthful persona and tried to be too grownup. Hey Dargo, your response just came through. Wow, I thought she looked familiar but I would have never recognized her. After all my 50s heart throbs I fell out of circulation after having joined the military where my first duty station was so far out there that we didn't even have freaking television. So I couldn't even tell you from where those older Angela's come from. Now I've lost my train of thought ; oh yeah, the 50s. It may be strange but as a rather young lad at the time I developed an appreciation for Rosemary DeCamp as she appeared on the Bob Cummings Show. So there was Joi Lansing strutting across my television screen all the time and yet I favored Rosemary even though I don't remember having any penchant for older women in those ancient, youthful bygone days. If I had an idol back then it was no doubt Bud. That brooding reticence with a touch of rebellion, I wanted to be like him. Instead I was stuck with me, ha.

See, I tole ya ... ain't she cute?

Good one, Darg !!!

Ya know what's funny about all this, laffite?

It's that truth be known here, when I was a young kid, I thought Rosemary DeCamp was quite an attractive older lady too!

(...with or without her holding up a box of 20 Mule Team Borax laundry detergent) ;)

The most beautiful Loretta ever was Midnight Mary (1933). I have her on my other computer, which is unavailable at present ... but you can take my word for it.

I'll bump this one up on my watchlist. I love Bill Wellman and Franchot Tone.

 I always thought David Cassidy had a decent voice.

 

And you know, I too think of "teen idols" as those who were/are idolized by teens,  and not necessarily teens themselves.  And in that group, we'd have to add---

FABIAN

BOBBY RYDELL

PAUL ANKA

'N' like that....
