*CANDIDS*

Postby mongoII » Tue Aug 12, 2008 3:55 pm

Beginning today, a new thread titled CANDIDS will feature vintage pictures of movie stars posted below. Please see the first part of the collection of images that I've chosen below.
The variety of images will include publicity shots, at home, on the beach, with famly, on the town, on the set, dating, also cheesecake and beefcake, etc.
I hope and trust that members of the board will enjoy it.

Thank you, Fernando. I collected a nice selection of images that I believe you will enjoy.

By the way, who is that in the picture that you used?

I'll look forward to your for candids here Mr. M., I see they had a field-day with your thread over there. Keep a stiff upper lip. They don't know a good thing when they see it.

Welcome Joe.

Re. I'm the one in the picture and it was taken circa May 2005, so I was almost 38.

Thanks :wink:

I think I'm the only one in these Boards who's actually using a pic of oneself.

If I looked that good I'd use my own picture too.

Mongo,
I think candids may be my favorite kind of classic movie stills, as opposed to publicity shots or scene stills. I can't wait to see your coming posts.

Thanks for the compliments Klondike. I'd say middle-aged, since I'm now 41. And I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I never learnt how to drive, for reasons far too complicated to explain here. And we have a very average car, which my wife drives :)

Fernando, after 12 years as a Certified Traffic Control Technician for the Federal Highway Administration, and six years as a Senior Registered Flag Instructor for the State of Vermont, and driving an average of a thousand miles a week, and paying, on average, twenty employees to stand out in front of moving vehicles for 8 hours a day,
let me tell ya . . in the big picture of Life, you ain't missin' a thing!
:!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:

Woops, sorry Mongo!
I fear I've been quite rude in getting your new thread so far off-track! :oops:
And I for one can't wait to see which candids you'll debut with!
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
So, Maestro Goodheart, if you would commence?
