Dashinger than Sexy Rexy?

Or Edward Mulhare or Ian Richardson or Richard Chamberlain?

I never saw Beerbohm Tree in his BVD's, but pretty much every actor from Leslie Howard on down who's played Higgins has been on the attractive side. I think it's important to believe that he and Eliza could have a sexual relationship if he was just a little less in his head and a little more in his body. (Not that a less-physically prepossessing actor couldn't pull that off, but it is one less hurdle for an audience to jump.)
