Do you know who David McCallum is?
He is an old actor who plays in NCIS.
Or at least that's what modern kids today know him as. Back 50 years ago the kids had a drastically different opinion. David McCallum was actually a huge star in his youth starring in anything from "Perry Mason" to "The Great Escape." But his defining role was as a Russian agent, named "Illya Kuryakin" in the TV show "The Man from UNCLE" (which I own and highly recommend)
Now take a look at him in his youth:
Certainly better looking than he is today, not to beschmirch Mr. McCallum, as nobody gets better with age, but answer me this. Is he really a heartthrob?
Sure, he's not ugly. Sure, he's in OK shape. But he was no James Dean or Sean Connery, was he?
Although the show aired at the height of the Cold War,
McCallum's Russian alter-ego became a pop culture phenomenon. The actor
was inundated with fan letters and a Beatles-like frenzy followed him
everywhere he went. While playing Kuryakin, McCallum received more fan mail than any other actor in MGM's history. Hero worship even led to a record, Love Ya, Illya, performed by Alma Cogan under the name Angela and the Fans, which was a pirate radio hit in Britain in 1966. A 1990s rock-rap group from Argentina named itself Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas in honour of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. character.
Are you boys paying attention?
Illya Kuryakin was an agent from, at the time, our HATED and SWORN archnemisis - the Soviets.
And chicks digged him more than any other character in Hollywood, let alone any one of the million of available hard-working American men.
Now I have seen the show. And David McCallum's character is certainly polite, dark, mysterious, but boyish and innocent as well. But do not be confused why he was such a heart throb among the ladies.
He was the "enemy." He was forbidden fruit. He was the "bad Soviet boy" that daddy would be furious about.
It's why felon game works so well.
You need to be forbidden. You need to be bad. You need to be pretty much the EXACT opposite of what women claim they want. This cannot be emphasized enough. If you pull up on a motorcycle with some tats, dare to even dismiss her presence, the girl will not be able to resist.
Don't ask me why. I don't know the underlying psychology and I'm too old to find out. but it "is what it is." And those are the rules you need to play by. Remember you want to be Illya, not Napoleon Solo.
