I would hit that yes

but I’m not a good person to ask because I click to a LOT of people and when I do I do it like a swarm of bees

I don’t think so. I mean, he appeals to many but some people, at least at first, find him slightly creepy because they don’t like B&W films because they think they’re depressing. I mean, I can understand that, I suppose. He does have this haunting aura. That might not be to everyone’s taste. As for me, well duh, he’s one of my favourites of all time so I’m a LITTLE biased. 

This may be surprising, considering that I have been, no exaggeration, obsessed with Colin Clive for fifteen years, but he’s not my type at all.  I mean, I can recognize that he was a handsome man, but that’s about it.  He is absolutely my favorite actor and I feel a deep empathy for him, but just no attraction whatsoever.  (There may have been a brief time when I was twelve or thirteen, but it’s gone now.)

I like that angle. cryingalonewithfrankenstein, ellielavenza, and I are attracted (excuse me while I speak for you both), but I can actually understand why a person wouldn’t be. And it’s awesome that you feel a platonic love for him. (If I may make the assumption.)
