Replace Gay with Sodomite please.

He is not Gay---he is a Sodomite.

He is delusional and has been given over to his perversions.

I never did watch any of his programs and I doubt if anyone really cares about this has been Sodomite.

Okay, confirmed now (page 10). Blackthorne was the first English pilot to sail through the strait of Magellan.

Not that anybody probably care at this point. I just confused the heck out of myself.

No, I'm saying "Holy Crap, when Richard Chamberlain was young, he looked just like Shepard Smith!"

Or

"Wow, I never realized how much Shepard Smith looks like a young Richard Chamberlain!"

Or

"Wow, Shepard Smith and Richard Chamberlain look a lot alike, except Chamberlain is much older!"

Or

"Wow, you know who that picture of young Richard Chamberlain reminds me of? Shepard Smith!"

Are we perfectly clear now? Any more questions? Did I get that ol' message across well enough? All ambiguity taken care of? Need any further clarification?

So, what you are subtly telling us is that Shepard Smith is gay....

if memory serves, that would be Dutch, not English.

We're both right... From multiple websites describing the series: "17th-century English pilot commanding a Dutch ship"

,,,,,,The English sea captain. ,,,,,,

Actually the character in Shogun was a navigator. The main character in Clavell's Taipan was a sea cvaptain. Two of the best adventure novels ever written, IMO.

It is also ironic that in Shogun, in the first part, when the Ghesha offered Chamberlain a boy he said, "I am not some god damn soddomite!"

Two of my favorite miniseries of all time are 'The Man in the Iron Mask' and 'The Count of Monte Cristo'. I couldn't care less about this guy's private life. Those two shows were awesome.

Part V in the miniseries 'Thornbirds' when Meggie and Father Ralph DeBriqesaw (?) finally got together was one of my favorites tv moments. We just loved him. Oh, well. At least he didn't pull a degeneres in you face stunt!

The guy was true to his craft and didn't rub our noses in his personnal life.

You know something Lead,... Chamberlain, Hudson, Liberace etc., had the grace and decency to be actors/entertainers first, and kept their personal lifes for themselves.
My hat is off to Mr.Chamberlain, Hudson etc., who just showed a true professionalism, in seperating the profession from the personal life, and along the way to keep it for themselves against all odds.

This is really something to behold, since is so seldom shown, now a days, with the Hollywood crowd.

They were personalities who played versions of themselves in movies.

Very true. The "greats" are great at being themselves in a character. The only actor that could be both himself and get lost in character, IMHO, was the late, great, James Cagney.

Yes, and no, and it was a pheasant. When his man servant removed the rotting bird, that Blackthorne had hung up to cure, in English fashion, he had violated Blackthorne's command as a Samurai, and was automatically executed. Blackthorne was outraged that it was done without his permission, since he had meant the command as a joke.

It just proved that the Japanese are real low in the humor department, like democrats.

Hello, Exit 148!

Yes, you are right, the love story in the Thorn Birds was incredible. Richard Chamberlain truly made the part come alive, and Rachel Ward as Meggie was excellent. They had such a connection. The double-whammy of forbidden love and unrequited love....what a combination. And, every woman I knew at the time that it was shown on TV fell in love with Richard Chamberlain.

I was really quite young during the Kildare series, but I do remember all the commotion over this hearthrob, Dr. Kildare (and Ben Casey, too). I think I remember the theme song began with something like, "Two stars will shine tonight..." I could be wrong.

Chamberlain's pictures were in every fan magazine at that time, too. He was always professional and kept his private life private. I am looking forward to reading his book.

I, too, am sorry that he had to go through all of the angst that he apparantly did. But, I am somewhat disheartened at the actual reality of his "persuasion"....he is such a dreamboat in so may ways that are appealing to women.

There were no legal homosexual marriages 20 years ago (and only Vermont recognizes them for now).

Don't know what they did, but they did not get married.

He didn't "wed" anyone. He went through a sick imitation of marriage, just like he and his "spouse" do a sick imitation of intercourse.

Now I'm really confused, you said goodbye in 86 and then gave another reply in 87. I understand your confusion, but you'll get over it. These women have no intention of trying to convert you to their religion. In fact, I'm sure they think this is a free country. Uh good night, I guess.

He was the priest in "The Thornbirds" too. He's a good actor, for sure. I've always liked him and thought about most actors in the "don't ask, don't tell". I could care less what they do in their private lives.

"Shogun" was a masterpiece. I still remember it vividly. Much better than "Roots". I'm glad the old fag didn't come out until now...shows he's got some class to just live his gay life without shoving it down our throats, or attacking the boy scouts like so many others have in the past 10 years.

"All the women loved him."

All us guys loved Rosie and Ellen too, not to mention K.D. Lange, and Hillary,we were devastated to learn that as guys, we had no chance with them at all-"NOT!"

Get over it ladies-Kildare just don't care, and a Rock is cold as ice. If Libarace was not gay, then no man has ever been that way-no real man that is. If being a normal man is offensive to some-to hell with such fools, and may God spare our families from contributions from such gene cess pools.

Run, don't walk, to the nearest Blockbuster and rent "Catch Me If You Can," starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, which portrays the life of Frank Abignale Jr. True story about this guy who was a con artist at the age of 16+. He was on the lam for several years, and one of his "characters" he successfully conned was a hospital doctor. Pretty scary, huh?!

PS I REALLY like this movie, for a lot of different reasons. Amongst other things, the acting is really good, and John Williams did the musical score which goes full circle to his early composing days when he was doing jazz.
