    You didn't know Sal Mineo was gay? Um ... by the way, I hope this doesn't come as too much of a shock, Elton John is as gay as well.

    Jill Haworth(who recently died this year in January and the original Sarah from the Broadway Cabaret) never gotten over Sal's death and lead a very reclusive life in Manhattan, similar to Greta Garbo herself. Now, reading the new biography on Sal, Jill was bitterly upset that the relationship she formed from Sal Mineo had to end, though they remained friends until his death. I don't think she gotten over him at all, despite her involvement with Paul McCartney. Out of all Sal's lovers Michael interviewed in his biography, she was the most difficult to reach.

    Sal Mineo was bisexual. I believe most people are bisexual but most will not admit to it. Possibly some have not yet discovered a sexual interest in both sexes, or have not yet developed a sexual interest in both sexes. But a gay man just has not met the right woman, and a straight man just has not met the right man.

    As my straight older brother once said to me, "Everyone walks on the other side of the fence at least once."

    Yes, he was so cute, and he kept his boy-like appearance throughout his (too) short life.

    I always loved Sal Mineo. Rebel Without A Cause is one of my favorite movies, and I really liked Plato.

    Terrible tragedies befell all three of the main stars in that movie. Sad...

    James Franco has the rights to his new biography that he wants to direct. Now, I am wondering who shall play Sal's part? Nobody ever looked like him at all. Anybody have a clue as to who can play his role at all?

    Yes i do hope they choose a person with the angelic features Sal possessd
    Difficult to captivate i feel
    Hope they dont use a person like Justin Timberlake, or similar
    James Dean Marlon Brando Sal Mineo had that 'brooding look' that very few could imitate me thinks
    A young Paul Newman would be deal.
    Perhaps they need to wait until a mediteranean type guy with those special features comes along one with special charm & qualities.

    thanks for the pics brody

    And there is something so hot about hearing such stories about straight guys who go gay at least once.

    And I agree. I'm bisexual.

    Sadly...most of the people that worked with him have already passed on, with a couple of exception like Susan Kohner, Eva St. Marie, Elizabeth Taylor, Mark Rydell, etc.

    According to Sal himself in interviews and the new biography, he didn't like to be identify with his sexual preferences at all and would have liked it that way. For career reasons, I believe. But then I don't know. **shrugs**

    It'll be an interesting movie, though. Sal did have flaws, like any human being there was. He had financial troubles even before and after his rise to the top. A very overbearing mother that used his trust fund till it became nothing. It was sometimes noted he couldn't pay his rent at all. Imagine a two-time Oscar nominee with money troubles. If you read further into his biography, it was very sad, but his passion for acting never left him. Even when his career took a nose-dive in the mid-60s, he still was willing to work.

    I read a book awhile back that stated that Sal and James Dean had a very intense and very public affair and breakup...There are pictures of both nude in the book as well...Sall was very hung very thick...The book stated that Sal was very distressed over the breakup or the death of James Dean...its been a long time and Im hoping to find the book so I can refresh my memory.

    A fun read, but it's 80% fiction.

    Well, according to Jill Haworth, she reported about Sal and Bobby getting together constantly at their place(?), even during her relationship with Sal. I believe when Sal dated Jill, he began take notice of his own attraction to men.
