The Man in the Plaid Shirt...

'Her Husband... Her Room...And Another Woman!'

Last month, as a lead up to Halloween, TCM did a horror marathon each Sunday night.  In addition to the great films featured, what drew me to the series was that each week, host Ben Mankiewicz was joined by comedian Mario Cantone who both helped choose the movies, and provided commentary.

I've been a fan of Mario's for many years, and reached out to Mario back in 2009 about a 'Favorites' interview for the site, which you can find. (HERE:)  I had never seen 1964's Strait-Jacket which starred Joan Crawford and Diane Baker.  Filmed two years after What Ever Happened to Baby Jane, Strait-Jacket was part of a 60's trend of former leading ladies, unable to get other roles, turning to campy horror flicks in order keep working.

The film, as well as Joan Crawford's performance, are indeed campy and over-the-top, but the movie, as silly as it was, was also a fun watch.  In the film's first few minutes, we're introduced to the husband of Crawford's character Lucy.  I don't think it's a spoiler to say, her husband doesn't stick around for very long....

I was instantly drawn to the actor's smile and great face, not to mention his thick chest, something I find synonymous with many actors from the 60's and 70's.  Today's leading men tend to be much leaner, and I must say, I've grown to love those beefier chests from actors from the time.  I didn't know who the actor was and given that the role was so small, he wasn't included in the films credits.

A quick search however, told me the actor was Lee Majors, in his very first role, even before becoming famous for his television roles in the later 60's and 70's.  I was never really a fan of the actor, although I remember my parents used to like watching re-runs of The Six Million Dollar Man. Although Majors sadly never did a nude scene, I did have go searching for more of his beautiful beefy chest.  Check out some of my favorite finds on the NEXT PAGE HERE:

Luke G: Autumnity

'Or perhaps it is only a blithe-melancholy mindfulness looking before and after that prompts any sense of poignancy, any trace of urgence in a season's change—the muffle bulletins of autumnity unheeded by an uncaring broad belt of the bright world content merely to don its fall singing coat.'
James Nolan

Autumn is my favorite time of year, but my passion for Autumnity flows throughout the year.  No matter the season, I gravitate towards cool breezes, rainy days, shadowed light and rich browns, oranges and reds.  I find Autumnity related visuals both cozy and comforting, especially when accompanied with an especially beautiful male form.

I'm sure many viewers recognize the seraphic and sensual Luke G.  I have featured the actor, model and photographer several times over the years.  I've come to associate Luke with the seasons given the incredible visuals he created.  Luke has been generous with sharing his self-portraits with FH, and I've previously featured his seasonal self-shots in both the cool autumn air, (HERE:) and in the cold winter's snow. (HERE:)

With his long hair and expressive face, there is an almost ethereal feel these shots.  Beautifully erotic for sure, but the emotion Luke exudes, in addition to a clear connection between the man and his environment, make each of Luke's images visually compelling and artistically unique. I'm grateful to Luke for heading into the forest to capture this set of images specifically for FH.

'Another year another autumn. The time where I reflect most on myself, my goals and my desires, tuning into why I do what I do and where I want it to take me. In doing so I just let myself go and let my instincts take over. These are the results.'
