    Atticus Finch. Gregory Peck was top notch and perfectly played the type of man every man should aspire to be.


    Steve McQueen is the ultimate badass. Raced motorcycles, patented his own race car seat and was unholy awesome with his GT-390 in Bullitt – he even did his own driving!


    Jayne Mansfield! One of the few that could grab attention away from Sophia Loren.


    Audrey Hepburn? Oh hoh hoh hoh. What an absolute doll! Class like that is dead today. I was born in '72 and even I miss those days. They were first class gals back then. Barbara Stanwyck will forever hold my heart.

    Does anyone know where this photo was taken. The label on the beer look like Karlovacko – Croatian No.1 beer so I assume it was somwhere on the Adriatic. Can anyone confirm this?

    Nice one, gents. Redford, Bogart, Rat Pack et. al., however, I feel it’s probably a good thing that Connor, Murphy and Rocko are fictional characters because there’s no DUKE FUCKIN’ WAYNE!! WTF guys??

    I'm a huge fan of Classic Hollywood,but let me tell you something,they were as self-destructive then as they are now.The one thing this new generation of Hollywood "Stars" lack is Class & Etiquette,which these people had in spades.

    Ah, good old times when men were REAL men, women were REAL women and small furry creatures from Alpha-Centauri were REAL small furry creatures from Alpha-Centauri.
