    Any possibility of nudes? I know it is doubtful, but maybe some good bulge or speedo shots are floating around. I have always been curious. In the 70's, no lady would've spoke about it on T. V..

    Considering his religious views and adherence I doubt there are any pics out there.

    What religion does he ascribe to? I knew that the family was old fashioned and wholesome, but I never heard that they were religious.

    Anyway, they have sexy Mormon boys, so why not Richard?!!:biggrin1:

    He's apparently a Methodist but the Mormon part isn't that far apart as his late sister Karen dated Alan Osmond at 1 time.

    Rumor has it there's good reason that "ladies" won't talk about him...
    Usually people get sued for discussing this, but it was referenced in the Todd Haynes film "Superstar"...

    That's a bit cryptic, distance. Could you elaborate?

    "The tone of the film was sympathetic to Karen, especially as regards her anorexia, but much of that sympathy was gained by making the other characters as unsympathetic as possible. Karen's parents, Harold and Agnes, were portrayed as controlling and indifferent; Agnes, in addition, was portrayed as dismissive of Karen's concerns about her weight. The duo's initial meeting with A&M Records owner Herb Alpert was intercut with stock footage of the Holocaust; the scene ended with a naked female corpse being thrown into an open pit, with a chilling scream overdubbed. Richard Carpenter was portrayed as a rampant perfectionist who frequently sided with his parents against Karen, and was also depicted as hypercritical of Karen. This culminated in a scene where Richard berates a fatigued and obviously ill Karen for not meeting business demands and "ruining my career", causing her to break down in tears. Haynes even insinuated during a fight between Richard and Karen that Richard was homosexual - which, if it had been reported to the public in the 1970s, would have destroyed the Carpenters' "clean-cut" image and the group's career."

    Full film available to watch on-line (warning can be tedious)

    It's hard to tell. It seems like only yesterday. For all we know, they were on top of the world when suddenly they began hurting each other.

    What is this masquerade? You talk as though they were close to you, but that sounds a little goofus to me. Of course you might just as well be calling occupants of interplanetary space. I believe you, but I can dream, can't I?

    Don't talk that way about Karen! She was a GODDESS! Her voice is still one of the most beautiful things on Earth.

    Ugh why is it disrespectful to want to see this woman naked when the thread is about seeing her brother naked? Im kinda young and dont know who she is, but it seems rude to me to not want to see all of a beauty because something happened ro her. Idk
