Last week I posted a poll asking you all to choose who you thought was the coolest actor of the '60s. The list you were given to choose from was one which took me approximately 30 seconds to think up and post. If I had thought about it any longer there would have been at least 3,000 more entries.
Tied for last place with 0 votes each are:
Frankie Avalon [hehehehe! I just put him in as an option to annoy everybody. ClassicForever readers are still paying for voting against Awesome Surfer Movies in that poll last year....;-D]
[How could you not vote for his clearly cool, unmovable hairstyle?!]
Alain Delon also received 0 votes....poor Alain!
And oddly enough, Sidney Poitier also received 0 votes! WHY?!
Coming in 6th place with just 1 vote is Peter O'Toole (at LEAST he managed to get ONE vote!):
Coming in 5th place with 2 votes is Marcello Mastroianni (Applaud. That's the first I've ever spelled his last name right without Googling it!)
Tied for fourth with 3 votes each are:
Bobby Darin! I am quite pleased as I gave him my vote because I thought he wasn't going to get any votes! You other two voters (or one clever poll manipulater): I salute you! ;-D
Also tied for fourth - the brilliant Jack Lemmon!
Coming in third with 5 votes is James Garner:
Coming in second [cough cough, should be first, cough cough] with 6 votes: The King of Cool himself!
And first place, with 7 votes, is Paul Newman:
Well, that was fun. Basically the entire REASON I created the poll was so I could make the results page and post photos of impossibly cool actors! ;-D
Also: Clearly my followers have an irrational hatred of accented actors. Alain and Sidney got zero votes, Peter got one vote, and Marcello was the highest ranked accent-- with two votes. WHY?! Haha
Thanks for voting! Who did you vote for? And who is your personal choice for the coolest actor of the '60s?
