Colin Firth, you know... the Kings Speech. In his late 50's so no spring chicken.

You do have a point with the "beyond the adolescent fantasies." Even the celebrity women of today whom I consider very attractive, are not as attractive to me as were the celebrity women of my youth. I think it is like with music or movies, your basic tastes are formed between the ages of 13-25 and change very little after that.
Fair enough.

Being fair, I should mention that the Brits have produced Joanne Froggatt, who they made look mousy on Downton Abbey, but who cleans up right nice otherwise. Pretty much the entire cast of Downton looks better in real life than they do when decked out for the series.

Ah. I had a look. I thought he had a face like a young walnut, but don't ask me about Male Beauty I've been a wencher almost as long as I've been an atheist.

Absolutely right. Women think that men go for the big bosomed blondes, and they can't be blamed for that because that's what men Say they go for because it's what they Think they should say they go for. But what often knocks a bloke out is an indefinable Socck that is in the eyes and the smile and the way they move and the Signals. Well I posted about a number of crackers that wouldn't win beauty contests, but deleted them, Felicity Kendall (she never worked as a seductress, though), (the young) Helena Bonham Carter... deleted them as Off Topic.

Excellent example with Felicity Kendall. Neighbors wasn't really my cup of tea, but I watched it for her.

Neighbours? I know that she was in the Good Life...(there was a Swapper plot that Ought to have taken off, but didn't ) but she never worked as the Mistress in a later series. I'll tell you exactly wot she woz.. she was the young single mother you had a chat with over the wall while you were clipping the hedge, and sometimes see in the Supermart, and you chat, and then in the caff over coffee, she says: "Why don't we go to bed, together?" (1)

The French ladies have Their style, and the Italian ladies have Their style (and i can say the Peru ladies have their style, too, with gringoes), but the Brit ladies have a style that maybe only the Brit lads know about It's a 'don't rush it' style that the Latin seducers don't do. I'm not saying they miss out, they probably get three time the hits that the Bits do, but they don't do it the Brit way.

(1) the Fizz comes with the "together" Otherwise you'd think she was suggesting you have a midday nap separately.

Right, my error, all those imported BBC shows run together in my mind after time has passed. The stupidest one was that "Are You Being Served?" which I could not believe American PBS thought was uplifting enough to make their program rotation.

Ah In the days when gays woz all the rage..while still being illegal and they had to pretend they wasn't. I was ok with gays, - freindly, once I made it clear that they could tear up my 'phone number. I think we woz Intrigued with one another's Different way of living. Particularly, we Both adored women, but for completely different reasons.
