Thursday 13 - the first!



The other day I saw a snip promoting the dvd release for the new Casino Royale and it had me thinking about all those leading men who, at some point in my lifetime, made my heart skip a beat, my breath catch in the back of my throat with an "oh my" hovering on my lips, or made me cry - the out loud, can't hold back the flood, kind. They are:

1. Cary Grant - To Catch a Thief - sigh, this man is the epitomee of a debonair gentleman, full of class, and even at a young age he made my heart beat faster.

2. David Craig - Casino Royale - I don't care that he's blond, he's rough around the edges, tough and sexy as heck.

3. Pierce Brosnan - Thomas Crown Affair - he was a good Bond, but I preferred him with a wicked side.

4. Colin Firth - Pride and Prejudice - oh man, the wet shirt scene says it all!

5. Denzel Washington - Glory - cried so hard when he is being whipped, the dignity and strength was right there, so was the determination to not be ground down.

6. Robert Redford - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - it was a tie between this one and the Rhinestone Cowboy, this one won out because he was bad without being evil :-)

7. Kevin Costner - Bull Durham - "I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days." Need I say more?

8. Harrison Ford - Star Wars - Hans Solo was sexy and wild, a rascal really and he made my young heart go pitter-pat.

9. Doug McClure - Gidget [he was Waikiki] - HA, Moondoggie was cute but when Waikiki shared her blanket at the beach party, well, enough said. On a side note, there was only one Gidget and that was Sandra Dee!

10. Clark Gable - Gone with the Wind - its that good bad thing again, gets me every time, but he get's me every time his daughter dies. Oh, and this is the first flick I found myself entranced by the clothes.

11. Oded Fehr - The Mummy - wasn't sure whether to trust him and that kept my eyes focused on him, lovely way to spend some time.

12. Timothy Hutton - Ordinary People - he played the surviving son so perfectly, you want to stand up and shake the mom and tell her to wake up, her son needs her.

13. George Clooney [just because I think the older he gets the better looking he becomes and I love the recent Oceans 11 and 12, as well as Syriana]

Thomas Crown was a great movie, made better by both Brosnan and Russo's sexy performances.

And I think Clooney is our generations Carey Grant

Yes to everyone on your list! Emphatic yes. But you know, I love Cary Grant. He was so suave and debonair in the movies he did. What's not to love about him?

I felt that way about Harrison Ford! :-)

Michelle Pillow said...

I watched Casino Royale last night. :) Actually, it was my work avoidance for the evening, lol. I think he was a great character in the very non-bondness of his Bond. :)

Chana said...

I loved the clothes in Gone With the Wind. I have patterns for dresses somewhat like that & will eventually learn to sew them myself someday.
