Intermission with Bud


Transitioning from the nude section of our Ferrero double feature with this charming photo of Bud Lanter.  I know several guys who have baby pictures in this pose that they keep hidden.

  1. Utterly charming photo. Bud Lanter was gorgeous. Good looks definitely ran in the family as his brother Gerard, who you've also featured in the past, was a stunner too.

  2. Ferrero's finest model, Bud & his brother Gerard were in school in Algeria when it was a French possession.

    1. Interesting info. Most of the French in Algeria had to leave when it became independent following a nasty war.

    3. Easy to see why he won the prize in Algiers. Thanks, Jean!

    4. The final French withdrawal was under DeGaulle in 1962. So the Freres Lanter were there around the end of French control. Must have been interesting times.

    5. To the best of my knowledge the first Ferrero photos of Bud Lanter (Robert Lanteri if my local sources were correct) are dating back to 1962 . By the way ,little brother Gerard was managing a gym in Nice in the 1980s .

    6. Someone should write the Lanter brothers' story. It would make an interesting magazine article or perhaps even a book.
