  15. My first was, very oddly, Roger Perry in the American TV series (1960) "Harrigan & Son." I was 5! Then I remember Gene Barry in "Burke's Law" when I was around 8. Looking back, I think you made a much better choice.

  19. Clint Walker was an early one of mine, too.
    But I think my first real one was Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan. Oh! That loincloth!

  20. I can go back further than any of you (which is hardly surprising, considering).
    On my mother taking us kids to see 'Gone with the Wind' (I would have been about 10/11) I remember her saying that she really loved Leslie Howard. If she hadn't said that I've often wondered since then if I'd have been so strongly drawn to him, inexplicable on hindsight. Not that there's anything wrong with him, he's just so far away from the kind of male I was to later got crushes on.

    1. Strangely enough, my mother liked Leslie Howard, too. He certainly never turned me on - I don't see what the attraction was.

    My first male crush was probably Richard Chamberlain in 'Dr.Kildare'.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My sister fell in love with 'Cheyenne Bodie' as a primary school girl and still thinks he's gorgeous. My first love was Virgil Tracey from Thunderbirds. In fairness, I was very young, and to be honest, in those days you just didn't see the strings!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think mine was Clint Walker as well, but it might have been adulation rather than what I felt for Hayley Mills.

  78. First female crush was Cher. I was about 10. The next year I had a crush on Barbara Eden as Jeannie.

    First male crush was Sam Elliot in Lifeguard, a movie I saw on TV when I was about 16. I had gay fantasies for several years leading up to that, but the men in them were always generic men, probably because I reluctant to have fantasies about men at all. I eventually gave myself the freedom to ogle men (as long a they were on big or small screen), and Elliot was the first. I also fantasized about Patrick Duffy as The Man from Atlantis, Charlton Heston in the Planet of the Apes, the various Tarzans including Ely and Weissmuller and even Lou Ferrigno as The Incredible Hulk--I had a thing for bare-chested men, even green ones.

    When I was about 18, a curious thing happened. I developed a crush on, of all people, Truman Capote. This was in the late 1970s, and his good looks had long since faded. He was fat and basically homely, but I didn't care. I don't know how much you saw of him in the U.K., but he was on American talk shows a lot. He was an unapologetic flamer who didn't care what straight folks thought of him, and that just turned me on (the fact that I would have stood a better chance with him than the heterosexual Elliot might have also had something to do with it.) I'm currently writing a short story with Capote as a character, so there still is a kind of lingering obsession with him.

    I'm occasionally attracted to drag queens. RuPaul does nothing for me, but I had a crush on Boy George when he first became popular.

    As you see, my crushes run the gamut.

  79. should I actually respond?...117 before me? What the hell. I researched Clint a few years ago, as he actually was mine too. It turns out he was one of the nicest, most level headed actors in Hollywood and loved his wife dearly. That makes him even more attractive!
