Who Are Those Guys?

Tonight, in quest to fulfill at least one of the things on my 30 Things to do Before I'm 30 list, we watched one of the Top 100 Films of All-Time: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
(I like this picture because it's written in German, but the only word that is different is 'und')

Now, I've heard great things about this movie...but I was never told about how handsome both of the leading men are. I've written about young Robert Redford before...but, seriously, Paul Newman? I would move to Bolivia with the two of them...what smart, 26-year-old school teacher wouldn't?

Grab a few and come on over. I have not seen very many of them either!
And, oh yes, on Paul Newman.

You will love Streetcar Named Desire. Marlon Brando - BABE, BABE, BABE.

Lisa Marie said...

If you like young and beautiful Paul Newman, you should watch The Long, Hot Summer. Not on the list, but should be. INCREDIBLE movie!

Kendra said...

I want to watch jaws with you. That sounds like a fun movie to watch

Allie said...

If you care about your life, your sanity and your time, you will NOT watch Lawrence of Arabia. Horrible movie. I watched it with a group of people who all felt the same as me.

Save yourself!

Have you done Gone With the Wind yet? My all time favorite - both in book and movie form. That Scarlett! It is hard not to have a love/hate relationship with her. I challenge you not to be just a little envious of her in the picnic scene at 12 Oaks : that dress, the boys all competing for her attention....perfect!
