Summer re-views: beach boys

A wet Saturday as summer slips away from us - here in the UK at any rate. How about some beach boy pix to refresh our memories ..... bring on Tom, Tab, Guy, Alain, Rory, Jeff, Fabian and all the rest ....
Alain in PLEIN SOLEIL, and that 1930s nifty swimsuit for THE YELLOW ROLLS ROYCE. 
Thats Guy Madison on the beach, then Rory Calhoun and Jeff Hunter, Tyrone Power with Cesar Romero, Farley Granger, Tab, Fabian, Troy and Sandra go off to A SUMMER PLACEand lets end with Tom Daley on the beach at Rio before the Games.... go Tom. 
Well, Tom didn't qualify for the final 12 - these things happen on the day - but hopefully the poster boy and media star will return again for Tokyo in 4 years time .... 


  1. These shots should be titled 'Snaps for creaming your jeans"; they certainly have made me want to visit the beach on my next trip to Spain. I didn't tell you but I am now subscribing to Netflix and I see one of the documentaries on it is TAB HUNTER; CONFIDENTIAL - obviously based on his book which I loved.

    1. Can you record items from Netflix to a flash drive ? Just asking ...... as you visit here in 2 weeks ....
