Go Retro's Retro Hottie of the Month: James Cagney!

Thursday, July 03, 2008
Just to clarify, James Cagney, admitedly, doesn't do much for me. However, I'm picking him as the Retro Hottie of the Month in honor of my cousin, Cheryl. Family rumor has it as a teenager, Cheryl kept a huge - nearly lifesize - poster of Cagney from Yankee Doodle Dandy in her room. She had a thing, apparently, for guys who shove grapefruit in their girlfriends' faces. This one's for her! And to all of you good little Yankee Doodle boys and girls out there, I hope you have a happy and safe Fourth of July holiday and that you don't play with any explosives. GoRetroGirl has been on V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N this week but I promise to return next week with more retro posts and goodness!


  1. I love the idea of a Retro Hottie of the Month!

    I had a friend in high school who had a thing for Gene Kelly, who was pretty cute (though rather difficult in real life I gather).

    My own fave is John Lennon (not so original, but there you go)

    Hope you had a great vacation!

  2. Lidian, I think my favorite "dead guy crush" is James Stewart. I think Gene Kelly was cute, too. But John Lennon isn't a bad choice either!

  3. James Cagney. When I was a kid, I thought my Dad *was* James Cagney! I don't remember how old I was, or for how long I believed...but I honestly thought that guy running up the sides of a stage...singing Yankee Doodle Dandy was my Dad! And the way I'd describe him (them) is rakishly handsome! ...Jude
