Today's Fanboy Delusion

Today I'd rather be...

... hitting the ropes with Alain Delon.

Oh goodness, goodness gracious, look at what I found, you guys! A 1959 interview with Alain Delon inside the ring on the set of Luchino Visconti's Rocco and His Brothers! (See more on this great film here.) The entire thing's in French and there's no translation unfortunately, but that hasn't stopped me from watching it three times and I doubt it will stop you either.

Good grief it really must have been something
to have been Alain Delon, right? Bastard.

Holy shit he's gorgeous.

Insanely beautiful in the 50s and 60s. Check him out in "Purple Noon," which is an adaption of Patricia Highsmith's "The Talented Mr. Ripley." He plays Ripley, the role Matt Damon played in the more recent version.

He's still alive--he's 80 now--and, unfortunately, he's pulled a Mary Tyler Moore. He supports the National Front, a far-right political party, and had been vocal in his opposition to gay adoption.

Started off his career as an "escort" to older gentlemen - brought to America briefly by big Hollywood Agent, Henry Willson, whose other discoveries were Rock Hudson, Rory Calhoun (and his secret lover), Guy Madison, Chad Everett, Troy Donohue, Lana Turner and Rhonda Fleming. Director, Geo. Cukor, Wilson, Rock H., Gil Turner (Turners Liquors, LA), Attorney Harry Weiss are only a few o' his early "clients" - Wilson decided it's best if Delon returns to Europe. Rock stars and most gorgeous want-to-be actors in 50s all had big cocks (and little talent), and most Agents and Managers were hungry gay men who wanted mostly str8 clients and Delon's cock was thee smallest. Hudson commented: "Cute, but tiny dick." Two excellent books on Hollywood's gay world: The Man Who Invented Rock Hudson -- also -- Scotty Bowers FULL SERVICE. Best true story movie: LA CONFIDENTIAL - won several Academy Awards. Years later, I ran into him in Rome, we had lunch. I noticed he has a small gun belt. I asked why. He said "There's been some kidnappings here and in Paris. I take no chances. Then, I noticed two husky guys not far away (obviously bodyguards).Few fans realize that it's NOT great at the top.
