Only Bing Crosby and he have topped Quigley five years in succession! The most astonishing thing about Burt’s achievements is that, on scanning his movies over those years, [...]

More on Harrison Ford.

  It remains debatable whether or not Carrie Fisher introduced Harrison Ford to marijuana or if he was already into it before they made Star Wars together in 1977, but there is no doubt that by the 1980s he was more or less an authority on the stuff. During a photo-shoot for GQ magazine he chose to give an interview to David Bailey while rolling and smoking joints throughout. Furthermore, he [...]

October 3, 2016 // 4 Comments

  Harrison Ford was born in Illinois about eight months after Pearl Harbor in 1942, yet this man who would feature in no fewer than seven of the most successful movies  of all time (up until 1994), did not really make a splash until 1977. In 1994, in Las Vegas, he was rightly honored as ‘Box-Office Star of the Century’ in front of hundreds of his contemporaries. Despite the staggering [...]

My Top 50 Handsome Actors (Pt 1)

February 6, 2016 // 13 Comments

    Since listing my 50 most beautiful actresses I have been asked to provide a similar list of the 50 most handsome men. And that creates a problem for me. Being heterosexual, how do I go about naming the men I find most sttractive? I don’t really think of ANY man as being particularly attractive, (although I recall in my punting days how I developed a ‘man-crush’ on [...]

April 3, 2015 // 2 Comments

In an age where ‘coming out’ seems to be the best way to curtail discussion on this monumentally over-rated issue he persists in denying his homosexuality for all he’s worth. Consequently, the tabloids [...]
