New Discovery - Young Leslie Nielsen

I have made a new discovery. Well not, exactly new, since it's about 50 years ago, but "new" to me at least. Leslie Nielsen was HOT. Yes, I have a humongous crush on the young Leslie Nielsen after seeing him in Tammy and the Bachelor (1957) (see my previous post about the Tammy movies). Wow! And he's half-naked in at least two scenes. And water is involved. Either from swimming or from rain. Move aside hunka Kirk Douglas, young Leslie Nielsen is giving you a run for your money!

Don't believe me? Still think he's just that old guy with great hair from all those spoofs? Well get over it. I know I had to, since I still think about him as the narrator of one my favorite kids' show Katie & Orbie as well as Mr. Magoo! But I was willing to put that all aside and embrace the hotness. I bring to you evidence in the form of pictures. And sorry, I didn't include any of him fully-clothed. That would defeat the purpose.



My heart beats so joyfully
To think of hot Leslie Nielsen

  2. I never in a million years knew Leslie Nielsen was hot! :)

    How gorgeous is he in that third picture there...

    I love the little poem you wrote for him, too.

    Perhaps I should pen 'An Ode to Ray Milland'. ;)

    Such great ideas here...and you mentioned being jealous of my blog! The first time I came across yours, I was so jealous, I thought, Why can't my blog be more like hers? :)

  3. I saw him in something and was a little surprised too. Ransom maybe.

    of course, given Vincent Price's early career as a stud, nothing really surprises me anymore.

  4. Kevin - You know me. I'm boy crazy!

    Ginger - Please let me know when you pen the Ode to Ray Milland!! I want to read it.

    Andrew - I love it when any preconceived notions or images I have of someone are completely shattered (in a good way!). Yes Vincent Price was a good looking guy! Very elegant and stately.

  5. Oh wow, and I had seen Leslie in Ransom and The Forbidden Planet, but these shots are so great. He was a looker indeed!

  6. I'd always thought of him as a senior citizen until I caught "Forbidden Planet". That's when I saw this guy that looked strangely familiar. I almost choked on my popcorn when I realized it was Nielsen.

  8. I would never have thought it either. I watched Forbidden Planet for the first time the other day and yeah, Young Leslie Nielsen is hawt.

Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
