James Dean and Marlon Brando are proof that they don't make them like they used to when it comes to Hollywood actors! Bad boy James Dean and activist Brando helped shape decades of men in film. Each with their unique style and their unfaltering good looks, Marlon Brando and James Dean created the mold for future actors to follow: if you could choose one of these time-honored hunks to be your boyfriend, which one would it be? 

As we try to figure out which superstar would have been your 1950's boyfriend, we will need to take a look at the things you want from a boyfriend.

As you go through the quiz, make sure to answer with the response most faithful to your real-life self. The only way to accurately match you with a hot Hollywood classic actor is to know what you like most!
