Robert Mitchum in Rachel and the Stranger. What a face that man had. Great hair, too...

Russ Columbo, one of the most legendary "gone-too-soon" Hollywood figures of the 20th Century.  His accidental shooting death in 1934 left the world stunned.  So tragic was this awful incident that--seems to me--the world chose to forget him, rather than ponder "what might have been".  A fine singer, poised on the brink of major film success (he'd just been cast as "Gaylord Ravenal" in the 1936 version of "SHOWBOAT," (the role eventually played by Allan Jones).

Arguably, the handsomest actor of the Silent Screen--and dead at age 32 in one of Hollywood's first "scandals"--when he died in 1923 while in the throes of a hopeless addiction to Paramount Studios's own doctors' prescribed morphine:  WALLACE REID.

Robert Taylor, who truly fit the title of "matinee idol" from roughly 1936-45.  He is fittingly found on many "handsomest male stars of all time" lists.  He was just about flawless from every angle and around 1938, one would be hard-pressed to think of a handsomer man than him.

The extra-handsome ROBERT SULLY.  Little-remembered today--though I was surprised to find that I'm not the only pinner who took note of his pretty impressive visage.  His brief role in "Meet Me in St. Louis" is surely his best-known role today.  If you ask me, he should have played the "Boy Next Door"!  He's something to sing about!  (sorry, Tom Drake, but....).

Startlingly handsome, with a physique second-to-none in the 1930's, Hollywood's first "Flash Gordon" remains one of cinema's most handsome men of all time.

At the end of the 1940's in Hollywood, there were very few men who could have been considered to be in the league of LEX BARKER, sometime "Tarzan" and one of Lana Turner's many husbands--in the looks and physique department.  Barker was simply blessed by the gods when it came to physical beauty.
