the look of love, is in your eyes

The picture of this man caused me to have a laughing fit in which I could not stop. His name is David Hemmings and he is no longer with us. Now, the reason why I even came around to this picture...
My hubby and I recently watched Blow Up-the 1966 film. The description is MUCH better than the movie. I'm still a little frustrated by the whole thing. (Austin Powers took so many things from this movie) My husband is willing to cut the film some slack. Anyway, the star is this skinny guy who, well is very young. I wanted to see what other films he's been in and this is what he looked like in later years. I'm sorry, I still am frightened and whenever I closed my eyes to go to sleep, I kept seeing his face.
He died on the set of a movie in Romania. I feel very attached to this man now.

I'm sorry I know I'm not going to be able to look at my blog with this photo here. I have a list I've made up for all to play, I promise to post it soon with some other pics.

To redeem him as an actor, you need to watch 'Last Orders'. A great film that also has some other excellent English actors like Michael Caine, Helen Mirren, Ray Winstone and Bob Hoskins.

He was actually nurturing those eyebrows back to health for release back into the wild...

You know-I did see Last Orders and it was a fine film. Last pic I saw while pregnant in fact. And I did not know then, that Hemmings was such a famous Brit.
It was a great flick, how can you not like Ray Winstone "sexy beast"? And of course Michael. "My name is Harry Palmer."

I hope those eyebrows were released.

God bless him!

It's just...the brows. The brows! With eyebrows like that you could do a total combover and pretend you had trendy young man hair. It's disrespectful, it's disgraceful... but.. but.. it makes me laugh sooooo hard.

I'm so impressed that lesser known 'Brit-flicks' like 'Sexy Beast' & 'Last Orders' make it over to the other side of the pond!
Its also great that you get to see Ben Kingsley doing a great turn in Sexy Beast as it makes up for his character in 'Thunderbirds'!!

E-I know-once you get the giggles you can't stop. It reminds me of a "couplings" episode. I think Jeff called it the giggle loop.

T-"sexy beast" was really something. Ben Kingsley will never be looked at in the same way. Brilliant and in such a creepy way! We just watched "enduring love". What did you think? Expected it to not be so obvious.

Wow! You're right. That's fun just looking at that guy. But thanks for posting the play list so you could bump him down the page a little. I've never seen either movie you said he was in. Have to check out "Last Orders" at least...

How many times in his life do you think that guy has heard "OOOHH BAABBY....." that he has not paid for? Maybe I will have a chance with the babes as an ole fart.
