With him I hope!
I wonder what Annette Funicello was afraid to "pet"?
Absolutely dazzling guy. If I recall correctly, he was one of two male models along with Suzy Parker on a famous Avedon shoot in Paris in the '50s. Avedon had good taste.
Yep, that's Gardner in the first pic here, sandwiched between Robin Tattersall and Suzy Parker. (Not a bad place to be!)
Just think if he had accepted the lead to play oppisite Marylin in "Somethings Got To Give" she might of lived and finished a great movie..
GREAT shots of this beautiful man.
