Morning Man Classic: Randolph Scott!

A few weeks before my dad died last November at the age of 92, my nephew and me took him to lunch and after settled in to his living room to watch a western on TV called The Tall T. The movie happened to star today’s Morning Man, Randolph Scott. It was the last movie I ever watched with my dad and we had watched hundreds and hundreds together over the years.

Scott was born on this day in 1898, retired from movies at the age of 64, and lived to be 89 years old.

He made more than 100 movies in a career that reached its peak in the 1950s. His films were of various genres but he found his greatest success in westerns.

He starred in such films as Belle Starr, The Spoilers, Seven Men From Now, and Ride the High Country.

The handsome Mr. Scott was married twice including a 40-plus year marriage to Patricia Stillman.

But it was his close relationship with Cary Grant that got the most attention during the early years of their careers.

It is widely believed that the two were lovers but neither ever acknowledged this, obviously. But what is known is that they lived together off and on for about 10 years as ‘roommates’ and the many publicity photos of them together are stunning.

While Grant is known for being dashing and handsome, you can see that Scott was also quite stunning. These days, they would be the biggest thing going on Instagram don’t you think?

Morning Man Classic: Stefan Edberg!

With the Australian Open at the halfway point this weekend, it’s nice to be able to celebrate two-time Aussie champion (1985 and 1987) Stefan Edberg who has just celebrated his 57th birthday.

The gorgeous Swede was also runner-up is Australia three other times. He’s a former world number one who also won Wimbledon twice and the US Open twice and was runner-up at the French Open in 1989.

He would have been one of the few players to complete a career grand slam had he been able to defeat Michael Chang in the 1989 French Open final. He lost in five close sets to the then 17 year old.

Edberg not only had then-rising stars like Chang, Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras to contend with, but he also competed regularly on the tour against such all-time greats and former number ones as Boris BeckerJohn McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl, and Mats Wilander.

Edberg played on four championship Davis Cup teams in his career, won the gold medal at the 1984 Olympic Games when tennis was an exhibition sport, and also won three grand slam titles in doubles. He and McEnroe are the only two male players in the history of the tour to have been ranked number one in both singles and doubles in their career.

His serve and volley game was so exciting to watch and so were his incredible legs!

But most of all, Edberg was the consumate gentleman – so much so that the Association of Tennis Professionals tour sportsmanship award is named after him.

Total class act.

Morning Man Classic: Robby Benson!

The absolute cutest teen idol from the 70s and early 80s was Robby Benson!

Today is his 67th birthday and as you can see, he’s still quite a dreamboat – and a grandfather of two!

Ice Castles, Ode to Billy Joe, One on One, The Death of Richie and Harry and Son are the movies I remember most and they left quite an impression.

Robby was not only adorable with blue eyes to die for, but he was such a fine actor with a lot of heart and soul.

It’s not like has ever stopped working since the peak of his popularity as an actor. He’s a versatile talent who writes songs, does voice acting (he was the Beast in Beauty and the Beast and in several sequels) and directs movies (Billy: The Early Years, Modern Love) and television (Ellen, Friends, 8 Simple Rules). And he’s still acting including a recurring role in the NBC series American Dreams, a role in the 2011 TV movie Brave New World and in more recent years appeared in the Hallmark movie A Feeling of Home and in the film Apple Seed.

Robby also wrote We Are Not Alone, the song that plays during the key dancing-in-the-library scene in The Breakfast Club. The woman who sang that track, Karla DeVito, happens to be Benson’s wife. They have two children. He has also taught film and theater at several universities including NYU and Indiana University.

Robby was born with a heart defect, necessitating four open heart surgeries. He is an activist and fundraiser for heart research, and wrote the book, lyrics, and music for a play called Open Heart, starring Benson, which opened and closed off-Broadway in 2004. He also wrote the medical memoir, I’m Not Dead… Yet! which was released in June 2012.

Flashback Friday: When Cher guested on “The RuPaul Show” in 1997 to promote “It’s a Man’s World”

Am loving the recent photos of Cher and her much-younger boyfriend. She is timeless! So here is Cher more than 25 years ago – when she had already been a star for more than 30 years – on The RuPaul Show promoting her album It’s A Man’s World which came out a few years before the blockbuster Believe. It’s fun seeing Cher and RuPaul interacting here and great to know both icons are still going strong.
