Not so random thought of the day

Our buddy KT, while noting that Barry Bonds was denied showing the jurors nude pics of his mistress in his perjury trial, lamented the lack of class, dignity and grace in modern popular culture and hearkened back some fifty years ago.


One of KT's commenters rebutted that everything is relative and nostalgia is a by-product of time... nothing in the present is as good as we will remember it in the future.

Perhaps, but consider...

Hepburn became one of the most successful film actresses in the world and performed with notable leading men such as Gregory Peck, Rex Harrison, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, Henry Fonda, William Holden, Burt Lancaster, Fred Astaire, James Garner, Peter O'Toole and Albert Finney.
(italics, ours)

In this respect, at least, name us a line-up of comparable Hollywood leading men.

Good lord... that's the Dudes' Dudes Round Table.

Who are you going out and grabbing a beer and steak dinner with... that crew or James Franco, Russell Brand, Robert Downey Jr., Johnny Depp and Jesse Eisenberg? Thought so.

Hollywood always has and always will have a seedy underbelly, like everything else...its just that these days WE are unrefined enough to want to know about it.

I would be thrilled with having such a classy list but would not hesitate in my decision. Cary Grant is the man of my choice. His wry humor, style, famous walk and his voice would sweep me off my feet. They just don't make them like that anymore.

I'd prefer to go out to dinner with Matt Damon.


Thanks for the link!
