Re: Man Up: Old School
I love the 1934 film of the "Scarlet Pimpernel" starring Leslie Howard. Guy with girl's name ... it all comes together.
His over the top portrayal of Sir Percy Blakeney as a fop ... (how do you not love the word fop, and foppish?) was fantastic fun to watch.
He was the original dual roled super hero. Like Clark Kent and Superman. Everyone thought Blakeney was an idiot. While the Pimpernel was awe inspiring.
My favorite Musketeers film is the 70's version with Michael York, Oliver Reed, and Raquel Welch. Funny stuff.
I very much like the concept of the warrior-poet. Or the notion of the man who simply is more than he seems.
Zatoichi the blind swordsman, Clint Eastwood's preacher from Pale Rider, Vigo Mortennsen from A History of Violence.
