Totally HOT Thursdays

For this weeks Totally HOT Thursdays, I have decided to go old school. Now, mind you I don't mind gazing at all of the beautiful men we have living in modern times. But I don't want us to forget the hunks of the past.

This gentleman you will know right away. Probably one of the first leading men and superstars.

Mr. Valentino was born  Rudolfo Alfonso Raffaello Piero Filiberto Gugliemi di Valentina d'Antonguolla on May 6, 1895  in Castellaneta Italy and passed away at the young age of 31 on August 23, 1926 in New York City. He was an Italian actor and known as the "Latin Lover." Some of the movies he is best know for are The Sheik, Blood and Sand, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and The Eagle.

I salute the golden era and all of the hunks from the past!!!


  1. OH MY GOD!!! He was such a stud and too bad that he died so young! All the leading Hollywood ladies wanted him. I do wonder what the world would have been like had he not died so early.

    Good pick for Old School Man Candy! :-)

  2. Nice choice from the Golden Age of Hollywood! It's a shame he died so young, but at least his hotness is immortalized on film for future generations to enjoy.

  3. What I remember from seeing him in those movies was the way he used his eyes - so full of expression. I hope you do this again because we forget those first greats on the screen. :)
