Hair perfectly styled with pomade, tie done to perfection, and with a charming smile that stole our hearts. There’s no way we could list them all, but here are our top 13 favorite male actors from Old Hollywood- in order!

His dynamic romantic roles had every girl and woman smitten all across the U.S. Rock Hudson’s good looks just couldn’t be denied! He won an Oscar nomination for his role in Giant, arguably one of his most complicated roles.
