Toy Boy



18 year old Roddy McDowall takes us into his room......


Dreams of staging an itty-bitty production of "The Women"

This, above all others, is My Pretty Pony
Gee, Ramon Novarro.....sigh.

....to show us his stuff.

I met him at a party in '93 or 4 and he was quite delightful.

Just finished Scotty's book myself. I'm really glad he was talked into putting out a book so all that history didn't end when he does, but as a book, eh.

Norma, I think his eyes are fine, it's just that for the purpose of the picture he's unnaturally close to the horse figure and he's actually trying to look at it. The photographer should have told him to 'cheat' his eyes.

Ah, but didn't we all go through a little Ramon Novarro phase?

(Why, yes, I was raised by my grandmother. Why do you ask?)

And as for the eyes - I think it's just Roddy's little Norma Shearer tribute...

normadesmond said...

yes, you're right about the eyes. you know me, if i can be snarky or rude, i am. isn't that why you send me those checks every month?

yes, the book is lousy (and he had someone help him write it!) but some of the revelations have thrown me, a lot.

FelixInHollywood said...

oooooh, do share with us the revelations that have you thrown, as for instance.......?

(you needn't provide details, just a name or two.)

When he was 18, he was still playing young boys on film, so I assume he's playing up that angle.

As a child, McDowall portrayed what in old books was called a "manly" boy. That is, a boy who acted mature, responsible and respectful, had integrity. A real Eagle Scout. I can't think of any young actors who could portray that kind of character so well back in the Golden Years of Hollywood.
