10 Best-Looking Men Of The 1950s

Move over Biebs, you have nothing on these guys.

Between the poddles skirts, perfect hair, and crazy expectations, women of the '50’s kind of had it alright. These men definitely gave them something to keep their eyes on.

1. Sal Mineo

Known most famously for his role as John “Plato” Crawford in "Rebel Without A Cause," Mineo made his way into the heart of women everywhere. With innocent eyes and the cutest baby face around, he was sure to make ladies melt.

2. Gene Kelly

Who doesn’t love a man who can dance? Gene Kelly tapped his way to the top of the “dapper gentlemen” list with his musical comedies like "An American in Paris" and "Singin’ in the Rain." His energy and comedic timing made him super likable and his killer smile made him to die for.

3. Gregory Peck

Dear Atticus Finch, you were the cat’s meow. From "The Snows of Kilamanjaro" to "To Kill A Mockingbird," it was hard not to fall in love with Peck’s smooth ways. It didn’t hurt that he won the Presidential Medal of Freedom for being an awesome humanitarian. Can you say, sweet?

4. Rock Hudson

If you wanted romance, Rock was your man. He quickly became the Ryan Gosling of the '50s with movies such as "Pillow Talk" and "Giant" (as in, with Elizabeth Taylor). Wouldn’t you fall in love with a face like that?

5. Paul Newman

A younger generation may remember him from the Ranch dressing packets at McDonalds, but women of the '50s remember him as a gorgeous, Cool Hand Luke. With a beautiful face and even more beautiful personality, Newman was an absolute heartthrob.

6. Marlon Brando

Before he was the Godfather, Marlon Brando was the dreamy boy from the wrong side of the tracks in "On The Waterfront." Every girl wanted their own, personal Terry Malloy. I mean, wouldn’t you?

7. Montgomery Clift

Not as well known as the other men on this list, Mr. Clift was a definite class act. He was quite a rarity in Hollywood as he did not sign with any major company until after his first two films were highly successful. His looks were slightly changed after a horrific car accident; however, he still had the ability to make women of the '50s weak in the knees.

8. Frank Sinatra

Old Blue Eyes. Even in 2015, Frank is still allowing young couples to fall in love with his timeless voice and talent. However, more than his smooth song, his handsome looks had women everywhere wanting a closer look at those famous eyes.

9. James Dean

The quintessential bad boy. If you love anyone with a rebellious nature in today’s Hollywood, know that it stemmed from this man. From his simple smile to his stern stare, Dean knew exactly what it took to be a heartthrob, even if he didn’t want to be one. But with a face like that, he didn’t exactly have a choice.

10. Elvis

Two words: Hip movement. The King of Rock rolled right into the homes and hearts of teenage girls everywhere. The hair, the dimples, the smile: Everything was perfect.

Thank God for men, and thank God for the 1950s.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
