Leave Her to Heaven
Of the many hunks at 20th Century Fox in the mid-1940s, perhaps none of them sparked the imagination of gals and gays as much as hunky Cornel Wilde (1915-89). Darkly handsome, with a gorgeous smile, a reasonable talent and a remarkable physique, which he took great pride in, Wilde was destined for movie stardom. He started out as a competitive fencer and was gearing up for the Olympics when he was "discovered" and whisked off to Hollywood. He was put into everything, from musical comedies (Centennial Summer - 1947), light comedies (Life Begins At 8:30 - 1942) to historical dramas (A Song To Remember - 1945).
