what does a pretty boy look like: pierre clementi

m+m was having a laugh today when i said something about a pretty boy or something to that extent. she said, “what is a pretty boy?” well, i guess you can call pierre clementi one… at least when he was young. not unlike belmondo and delon, clementi grew old to look rather “dirty” but in his youth he was the quintessential pretty boy, at least to me…if you want to see him at his peak watch bernardo bertolucci’s film the double… or the conformist, where he has a much smaller role. the double is by far a better piece for clementi and his character.  by dd
