Frank Loves Mike Henry!

My first gay crush was super hot actor Mike Henry.


He was an ex-football star who ended up playing Tarzan in three 1960’s movies.

In the early 70's, at around age 10, a friend of mine showed me a movie magazine about Tarzan films and there was a photo spread on Mike Henry.

The man was all muscles and chest hair and chiseled features.  

And I felt something tingling inside me. 

I found him very, very attractive.  
I talked my friend into giving me that magazine, which I kept for years. No one knew about my crush because homophobia was at its zenith back then.

But I never forgot about Mike Henry.

“Body by Michelangelo” was his catchphrase.
Which was a pretty good description!

OMG! Yes! I was used to Ron Ely as Tarzan and grew up watching him on TV. One day, the local TV channel happened to play a Tarzan movie starring Mike Henry. I never forgot Ron, but he seriously took a back seat to Mike!
