In the film This Above All, Joan Fontaine’s character tells Tyrone Power’s character: “Oh, you’re rather good-looking, really. Nice sort of face. Nose a little on the fine side, mouth a little too big. One of your ears sticks out a little more than the other… did you know, your face is slightly lopsided?! [giggles]… but your eyes are good, nice deep brown.”
So, in celebration of those eyes, that fine nose and that nice sort of face: a Ty candy post (as bollyviewer commented, Tyrone Power’s name can be punned endlessly!)
To begin with, a shot from one of his earliest films, Suez (1938). He looks so wistful and downright beautiful here, very different from in his later films:
Just a year later, in Jesse James, he’s looking a little more like the Tyrone Power we know:
But it’s in Blood and Sand (1941) that I think he looks his best:
The same year, he also acted in A Yank in the RAF. Otherwise a forgettable film (I don’t like Power’s character at all), but it had him looking fabulous.
…so fabulous that I have to include another screen cap from the same film.
And he looks looks pretty gorgeous in The Black Swan (1942). I’m usually not a fan of men with long moustaches, but Power manages to carry even that off. Especially with his head resting on a lacy pillowcase!
In 1942 itself, Tyrone Power also acted in Son of Fury: The Story of Benjamin Blake. Doesn’t he look wonderful here?
Though perhaps a little older in this screen cap, also from the same film.
This one has to be among my favourite shots of Power. It’s from Crash Dive (1943), where he plays an officer on a WWII submarine. I love that boyish grin!
And, finally, an older Power, from Captain from Castile (1947). Still lookin’ good.
