Who is your favorite movie star?
Tyrone Power in Alexander's Ragtime Band (1938)
Dear David,Who is your favorite movie star?
Dear Starry I'd,
The only movie star I ever had a real crush on was Tyrone Power. I must have been about twelve. I saw him in "Jesse James" and wrote him a fan letter. I was really in love with him. Tyrone Power had a graceful face for black and white cinema. He had beautiful eyes. He was Irish but decended from Spanish sailors who had been shipwrecked off the Irish coast - when the Spanish Armada tried to circle the British isles. No one else in the cinema has struck my fancy since then.
