That’s a strikingly contemporary look for 1955. (via VintageGal)

I love this picture of two teenagers making out in the 1950s because you can totally tell that he’s Tab Hunter hot. Seriously, WHAT a total dreamboat. And she’s THE LUCKIEST GIRL EVER. Do you think they’re still alive? Are they still together? Is he still cute? #wheresmytimemachine
Sexy Lexy, omg he DOES THINGS TO ME. My absolute favorite Tarzan of them ALL. (Buster Crabbe
comes in a close second). Here we have a gallery of ’50s era comic book covers featuring Lex playing bongo drums, laughing at bananas, cuddling Cheetah, straddling tree trunks, and just generally being A BIG BLOND MAN. Oh, to swing on his vine! More covers at AngelFire.
Seems young Bruce was quite the dancer, making his segue into martial arts a natural, we’d imagine. In 1958, he became the cha-cha dancing champion in all of Hong Kong. Little-known fact? (Photo at right via thisisnotporn)
Who? I know. I’d never heard of him before today either. He played Li’l Abner on Broadway and in the movie and ZOMG he’s SO HANDSOME! He literally looks like Superman. If Superman were a technicolor hillbilly. Don’t ask me how I stumbled onto this video. I just did. And now I’m OBSESSED. IMDb doesn’t have much to say about him other than that he’s 6’3, a Virgo, and was married to a former Miss Canada. But, oh, watch this video, and imagine him holding you in his arms, singing to you in that earthy baritone. You can start it at the 2:40 mark, that’s when he’s at his swooniest. I LOVE YOU, PETER PALMER.
