William Holden and Capucine

Don’t know what it was about William Holden but this guy hit all the buttons for me…

  • Gorgeously handsome
  • Masculine
  • Hirsute
  • Well spoken

He had it all. But I think Cole Porter had the right idea….

“Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick,tick, tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall
Like the drip, drip drip of the rain drops
When the summer showers through
A voice within me keeps repeating
You, you, you

Night and day you are the one
Only you beneath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far it’s no matter darling
Where you are
I think of you
Day and night, night and day
Why is it so that this longing for you
Follows where ever I go
In the roaring traffics boom, in the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
Night and day, day and night
Under the hyde of me , theres an oh such a hungry yearning burning
Inside of me
And this torment wont be through
Till you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day.”

  1. Without any understanding, I was first attracted to WH when I saw the newspaper ads for “Picnic.” It was 1955 and I was all of seven years old. Though it obviously had something to do with the ripped shirt, his bare chest and, I later realized, the raw sex appeal emanating from the man, it was decades before I finally saw the film. It did not disappoint! All of the old fascination returned in spades as I watched his shirtless scenes. Yes, his chest was shorn of that glorious hair, but the potential of the magic I felt as a child was finally realized.

      • the sauna pic is definitely from ‘Breezy’, just watched it. there are several close-ups of his chest throughout the movie. if you got a thing for him or hairy guys in that age range i highly recommend this movie on blu-ray. it is a tad on the soft side, and you want as much clean and crispness as possible for body hair, so i would not want to have this on any format less than a blu-ray. (mine was a region free import from amazon) good story, good acting for the most part, inter-generational.

  2. i dont know how to go about doing it, but i would love a box set of just his movies on blu-ray to show off that hair. at least the 60’s on up. just ordered breezy on blu ray. i think he is an above average actor besides being smoking hot. just watched ‘the towering inferno’ and he was easily the best actor even among the all star cast. everyone else was either over or under acting while he was just normal.
