Buster Crabbe





Long before Robert Conrad was tied up and tortured shirtless in "Wild, Wild West" there was Buster Crabbe getting electrocuted by a man in a dress (Ming the Merciless). I actually saw these in a real movie theatre... something I think I'll write about soon as many of us are old enough to remember the "local movie house" growing up. In the meantime... Some revealing photos of the man that made me want to dye my hair blonde and wear short shorts while holding a ray gun when I was a young boy. To this day... there are few guys hotter than Buster back in the day!

YES! My Buster Crabbe nights were spent on the couch - channel 27 out of Worcester ("Wista" to you non-New Englanders.)

Buster is definitely the man.

I was just watching a few minutes of the Sam J Jones FLASH GORDON on cable the other day -- and amazingly it didnt look half bad all these years later.

Buster sure was a beefy dude

He was such a hottie, I have no idea what his political leaning were.. or really anything about his life. I don't want to know either... as long as I keep finding photos of him shirtless in ting shorts (or better the one of him naked taking a shower from an old film whose plot i completely forgot)

To quote Janet Weiss:"I don't like men with too many muscles..." BUT I might not mind a Crabbecake every now and then...oooh!

Crabbe was a hot piece of ass!

I was watching the awful E! channel show, KENDRA the other day, and on it, her 20 something fiancee thought he was bonding with Hef over "Flash Gordon." It was obvious to anyone who knows anything that Hef was talking Crabbe and this kid was talking about the 80s movie with the Queen soundtrack.
