    That’s an old issue. I think like two weeks?
    But yeah. He’s still a hottie, even at 76.

    Go ahead, make my holiday.

  3. T.Holly says:

    Raises the question, is DP a straight shooter putting up old traditional media? Remember Sienna Miller’s topless Vanity Fair picture? I see a trend though with Clint, Peter, Helen, Judi, Marty — old is sheik.

  4. lazarus says:

    more like “Oscar Ho Ho Ho”.

  5. bipedalist says:

    Good point. DP only links to traditional media (occasionally other outlets but mostly) so I guess that must mean he …. gasp … thinks highly of them?

  6. mutinyco says:

    Clint, Peter, Helen, Judi and Marty are in an old Valentino film? I’ll be damned. Or was that a play on words? How chic!

  7. T.Holly says:

    Or subconsciously, they’re all “men” held to be irresistibly attractive to romantic young women.

  8. David Poland says:

    I have always said that I am a traditionalist and hold Traditional Media in high esteem. That is why I expect so much from the NYT and LAT

  9. jeffmcm says:

    ‘old is sheik’? Did somebody seriously write that?

  10. T.Holly says:

    Yes, I did write that, and you can add Sly and Jack to my list.

  11. jeffmcm says:

    It’s not the content of the statement that anyone is gawking about.

  12. Cadavra says:

    And anyway, it’s correctly pronounced “shake.” Those of us of a certain age remember a Frank Zappa ditty called “Sheik Yerbuti.”

  13. movielocke says:

    is this the equivalent to the “Peter O Toole is sick and dying” headshots FYC/poster for Venus?

  14. T.Holly says:

    Ohhh, Shake Your Body, so my condom brand is Shake not Sheik? Is a dam a Chic Sheik?
    movielocke, Peter and Clint (close, but no cigar) have similar eyes.

“Well, actually, of that whole group that I call the post-60s anti-authority auteurs, a lot of them came from television. Peckinpah’s the only one whose television work represents his feature work. I mean, like the only one. Mark Rydell can direct a really good episode of ‘Gunsmoke’ and Michael Ritchie can direct a really good episode of ‘The Big Valley,’ but they don’t necessarily look like The Candidate. But Peckinpah’s stuff, even the scripts he wrote that he didn’t even direct, have a Peckinpah feel – the way I think there’s a Corbucci West – suggest a Peckinpah West. That even in his random episodes that he wrote for ‘Gunsmoke’ – it’s right there.”
~ Quentin Tarantino

“The thought is interrupted by an odd interlude. We are speaking in the side room of Casita, a swish and fairly busy Italian bistro in Aoyama – a district of Tokyo usually so replete with celebrities that they spark minimal fuss. Kojima’s fame, however, exceeds normal limits and adoring staff have worked out who their guest is. He stops mid-sentence and points up towards the speakers, delighted. The soft jazz that had been playing discreetly across the restaurant’s dark, hardwood interior has suddenly been replaced with the theme music from some of Kojima’s hit games. Harry Gregson-Williams’ music is sublime in its context but ‘Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots’ is not, Kojima acknowledges, terribly restauranty. He pauses, adjusting a pair of large, blue-framed glasses of his own design, and returns to the way in which games have not only influenced films, but have also changed the way in which people watch them. “There are stories being told [in cinema] that my generation may find surprising but which the gamer generation doesn’t find weird at all,” he says.
