Back in the mid-1960’s a television show titled Flipper aired. One of the stars of the show was a teenage actor named Luke Halpin. That’s Luke to the left, as he appeared in the show. Luke was shirtless in probably 75% of the scenes he appeared in, and this wasn’t by happenstance. As soon as the show first aired, Luke became a celebrity because of his amazing body. He wasn’t a beefcake, just sinewy and smooth. And his thick blond hair was amazing.
Recently, someone sent me a link to a lengthy article authored by a Luke Halpin devotee who provides a detailed history of Luke, and also discusses Luke’s amazing physique at length. Of course the article provides dozens of Luke Halpin photos for those folks who enjoy them. Here’s the link to the article:
I was a young teenager when Flipper was broadcast on TV; I was a horny young gay man living in a world hostile to male/male sex. But at least I could dream about holding Luke in my arms and stroking his beautiful hair, among other things. 😉
I understand Luke is still alive in south Florida, but he’s in poor health. That is sad news, but I will always be grateful for those early years in my life when I had Luke to brighten my days.
