Some Guys Have All the Luck!

I've mentioned before here how I, an almost complete idiot when it comes to computers (and maybe other things, too, but you don't have to say so!), took forever and a day to realize that I could examine the statistics of this blog to see which pages are most popular, which keywords brought people under the surface to The Underworld and which parts of the globe are looking at the site. You wouldn't believe some of the wild shit that comes up when I look at the keywords! Never mind that, though. What's really fascinating is that, far and away, the most popular person searched for that draws people here, in the past and now, for all time, without hesitation (!), is Linda Evans. It blows my mind that of all the folks I've profiled, more people are sucked into the whirlpool of Poseidon's Underworld from their queries on Miss Evans than by any other person. No harm to her. If I didn't like her, I never would have posted about her. It's just surprising. (If anyone cares, the second most popular person when it comes to luring people here is Miss Diana Muldaur... again, I'm like, “Huh?” To give you an inkling, Muldaur is second, but she only gets 24% of the searches that Evans commands!)

Anyway, another surprise comes in the fact that, while my posts about TV beefcake, bulges, speedos and bare chests are easily the most viewed posts here, right in there swinging in the top four is a posting I did in February of 2010 about three particular Guys. That capitalization isn't an accident. I mean three men all named “Guy!” For some reason, that post is really heavily visited. Again, the shot that attracts the most people is a surprising one, a simple head shot of Guy Stockwell. Maybe it's because there seems to be so little of him out there. You know... sometimes you just have to give the people what they want, so today I'm going to offer up more imagery of the gentlemen in question. I won't get into the biographical info because I did that the first time. This is just another photo essay with more shots of, in order, Guy Stockwell, Guy Williams and Guy Madison. In selecting the pics, I just tried to post the ones that I like for one reason or another, which is what I do for every post, and hope that you like them as well! Click to enlarge for the best quality.

Mr. Stockwell is shown below during a guest shot on Bonanza with Lorne Greene, buried waist high in the sand in Beau Geste and next to his wife during the shooting of that same film. He's also shown accepting an honor along with Miss Jill St. John. Because he was not a humongous star, decent pictures of him are not easy to find, but hopefully these can make a few people out there happy until more are dug up. I have also added an additional photo at the top from The War Lord, in response to heavy demand for images of Guy in that little-seen film.

Next is Mr. Williams, hero of Zorro and Lost in Space. Williams was not one to strip down much, if at all, but when he made the sword & sandal epic Damon and Pythias, at least we got some leg. There's a scene in which he plops down onto a seat and his skirt flies up, offering what seems to be a shot of his balls! However, as we learn later when he's frantically riding a horse, he has crisp white jockey shorts on under his tunic. (Sorry these caps are blurry, but they're the best I could do!) Incidentally, if you look at some of his pants, especially the grey ones worn with the white shirt, you'll see that he religiously "dressed left."

Finally, Mr. Madison. I think the sepia-toned shot just below may be my favorite photo ever of Madison's face. The color photo at the bottom in the green shirt and tie is right up there, too. What a great looking man, whether buttoned up or shucked down...
