Excuse Me But....What a Hunk!!!

Richard Arlen was born Sylvanus Richard Van Mattionore in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Mr. Arlen was not known for his acting chops, but he did keep busy in the movies and television from the 1920s to the 1960s.  His most significant role was in Wings (1927), wherein he competes with Buddy Rogers for the love of Clara Bow. 

It is quite obvious why the young Mr. Arlen made it in the movies.  I mean, just look at that amazingly handsome face ...

Rrrrffff!!!   Happy Birthday, Mr. Arlen.
