Twisted Impressions #13: Distracted Eyes

Dear God, don't put those boobs in this poor boy's face and expect him to act natural! He may be in a wheelchair, but he's not dead for chrissake!..... And don't think for a second that this man on bended knee is any less distracted.  Sure, he looks to be full of compassion and caring; but there's only one thing he's caring about right now - make that two things - and they're just inches from the tip of his nose.

Not all of us can be as firm and resolute as the next guy....

I guess it's that military training that allows him to exhibit such self control. He's literally at eye level, and yet he manages to keep looking up.  I salute you, sir. You are a better man than I.... and a better man than Redd Foxx....

Lamont Sanford: You're a dirty old man ya know that?
Fred Sanford: And I'm gonna be one 'till I'm a dead old man!

I love this one - it's the oldest trick in the book.  There's a gorgeous chick in a miniskirt approaching and you catch yourself staring a bit too long..... the best thing to do is nervously fidget with your collar lest people think you're a pervert.

Here's a real dilemma. He's got to read what's on the sweatshirt while at the same time not letting his eyes linger lecherously. There's only four words - should take just a few seconds.  From the looks of this photograph, he got lost in the scenery. Poor guy. He is so busted.

I have no idea of the context here; however, I have all the information I need to know that two young men have let their eyes wander where they shouldn't. Curse that infernal miniskirt!

This picture is definitely in my top ten favorite images I've scanned. (Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me remember where I scanned this from.) It really tells a story: the guy appears to be on an awkward date with a sort of average looking girl.... and this poor boy is just wide eyed distracted by the bunny tailed hostess. Classic.

Our friend in the dirty saddle shoes can appreciate a short miniskirt when he sees one.  Best of all, he doesn't hide his attention and she is silently mindful of it.  Girls truly had power and dominion over men back in the heyday of the mini.

And before we wrap it up, here's a few more guys caught looking.



  1. Plain Jane seems to want an eyefull of bunny tail girl too. Maybe there's a good reason their date was so awkward.

  2. I envy actor Pat O'Brien in the first image.

  3. There's a great photo of Zero Mostel looking down a teenage Shirley Temple's dress at some awards thing. He is so totally busted with that photo. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_PtnVGPtWelw/TKi7yHJbsJI/AAAAAAAALPI/9ssrgWcBOfI/s1600/Zero.jpg

    1. Ha! I've never seen that one. The fact that he's so sweaty looking makes it all the more perverted looking. Thanks for sharing that one.

    That looks like character actor Doug McGrath ogling the amazon in the cable-knit thing (fifth photo from the bottom). He was in the original "Black Christmas" as well as several Clint Eastwood movies.

  5. The last picture: She's thinking, "Yeah, he's a dummy, but he's stiff as a board."

  6. I remember the Mostel and Temple picture from Kenneth Anger's Hollywood Babylon. I wonder how she reacted to the picture, 'cuz you gotta figure she saw that, if not Mostel staring at her.

  7. Photo #10 is from a Canadian film called "Goin' Down the Road" from 1970.

  8. Why should the man in #5 be embarrassed by supporting the Cardinal Varsity Club...I mean, look where's he's Telefunding...
    (don't forget--alma mater of David Letterman)

  9. I might be mistaken, but that could be '50s TV personality Dagmar in the first photo.

  10. One New Year's Eve, neighbors came to our house as they were going out with my parents. Neighbor Wife was wearing a short dress and sat next to me. God, those 15 minutes were both sheer hell and bliss, as she looked so great, but I couldn't look down at her exquisite legs, lol. She had to know what she was doing to me.

  11. Do you know if the photo with the dirty saddle shoes and gal in a mini skirt was taken in Indiana? I swear that looks like my mom! :-)
