Return Of The Original Hollywood Playboy


GQ has selected Warren Beatty as one of its Men Of The Year for 2016, hailing the return of alpha males and the “original Hollywood playboy.” Beatty directed and stars in the new film “The Rules Don’t Apply,” which is set in Hollywood in 1958.

Beatty features in the book “Hollywood And The Ivy Look” wearing a slouchy herringbone sportcoat over a popover, from which the top photo is taken.

Beatty’s first film was “Splendor In The Grass,” opposite Natalie Wood:

  1. I remember Beatty in the old “Dobie Gillis” shows in the early 1960’s. I loved that series back then. Unfortunately, now, I can’t stand Dobie or Maynard.

    My favorite Beatty movie is “The Parallax View.”


  2. Loved this story from Beatty:

    “Once, early on, I was at a party and I had three or four women around me. Cary Grant was out on the dance floor with a woman, and I was watching him, and at one point he sweeps by with the woman and says to me, with a wink, “I used to be you.”


  3. “…the return of alpha males”

    Well, that happened, didn’t it?

    Alpha Males 1, Feminists 0

  5. Warren Beaty: 1, women: 973.

  6. @wriggles, you may no longer be able to stand Dobie or Maynard, but just imagine how you would feel if Zelda was your County Supervisor.

  7. There an episode of Dobie where the two fellows compete for the heart of a young lady by out-dressing each other at the local haberdasher, some great Ivy threads!

  8. You know what they say about alpha males…

  9. @ roycru

    Truth is stranger than fiction.

    Zelda probably is an excellent county supervisor.
