Hollywood Hottie: Sal Mineo

I came across some photos of Sal Mineo and learned a lot about him.  He was the model for the artwork at the bottom of this post.  I cannot say that I have seen his movies, but I want to check them out now.  Anyone out there a fan?


  1. Hey Gabriel,

    When I was younger, I had several people tell me I looked like Sal Mineo. At the time, I didn't know who he was but was definitely curious to see him. A friend took me to a revival theater to see "Who Killed Teddy Bear?" A cult classic and Sal looks totally hot in that. Recently, I've been collecting his films and catching up on almost all of them except the real rare ones you can't find. I would highly recommend reading the biography by Michael Gregg Michaud. Sal Mineo was a brilliant actor. Even in his teens, he gave incredibly mature performances. Definitely see "Rebel" , "Dino", "The Gene Krupa Story" , "Exodus" and "Teddy Bear"

  2. PS: Not many people are aware that Sal posed nude for that painting called The New Adam, which can be found at the Guggenheim. I'm still waiting to see James Franco's film Sal but not sure if it will be distributed.

  3. Thanks for all of the great information about Sal!
