how bloody gorgeous is Alan Bates in this movie....!?! SPOILER.


(and, yes..I've seen Women in Love.)
I suppose one could think of The Onion headline...'Killer Kinda Cute'.

reply

What about Zorba the Greek and The Mayor of Casterbridge?

reply

And, Far from the Madding Crowd (go Gabriel!)

reply

oh..! I've not seen these..! My Bates viewing needs to improve..! Thanks for the heads up.

reply

Totally concur -- one of the opening shots of his face reminded me of Russell Crowe! But I think Bates is WAY better looking...

reply

It's his eyes I think.

It's so satisfying to know what an utter twat you are... homophobic, racisct, a general cünt to others... I imagine your life is like a game of one man rugby, you never receive a pass. Zero empathy... how did you ever cajole your wife into having kids with you, forget the Jhonnies? (You'll have to remember all this crap when you think you're trolling B.T W, exposing yourself a a deadbeat father isn't really helpful to your cause as you think). Can I speak with her. I'd like to know what she thinks about the way you spend your 'spare time' being such a sad and idiotic bastard? Put her on!

Don't feel 'butt hurt' stalking me, it's just life.

Moron.

P.S This makes posts all the more real.. cos' I livs on teh interwebs 4 plesure: IT'S ALL 4 TEH NETRAWEB N UR LYFE LULZ!



P.S the guy behind the 'Moo' persona is a total fücking weirdo, and you knowz it. Except you want to be just like him (insert laugh)

Oops, he's been baited into a repsonse, children! His troll masque is detorating by the week! Does it bother him that he's let his guard down and posted a load shït about his life he wouldn't of otherwise have cared to? Or did he never understand the idea of 'trolling' in the first place? "I have a baby, I'm a deadbeat... I can carry it once then I toss baby over to it's mother and carry on being a useless half-wit".

Well done.

reply

Where's he gone!?

Vanished like a limp fart into the wind as usual, I expect.

reply

No comeback?

reply

Uh oh! Wait for it, he's thinking of a considered and witty reply! Although he's still online being a cünt, 'ignoring' it all.

You have zero mettle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlNXKOChi8w

P.S http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxwEmpSD_Is

Now you'll spend your time hunting down the people who made those clips believing it's me, like the sad slice of thick turd you are. You just can't help it, can you?

P.P.S Happy little internet life... you must really hate your 'loved ones'

Just asking, why did you ever decide to have kids with your wife? You are clearly the only person you've ever been in love with. Why didn't you simply have a wank and rub spunk into your idiotic phizog? (yes! I've seen your face, and you look like an ugly outback shït with no brain!).

LULZ!

reply

Why don't you reply? Changing nappies or something? (big stretch probably). Too eager to get back to the internet and continue your life as a wandering cünt most likely.

reply

Being a hobby troll doesn't matter any longer. You are still a slimey lttle crap bag.

LOLZ!

Did you forget to log out or something? Or are you here just to stick up for one of your precious little internet bum chums?

See, I don't get all the crap about slagging others off for being 'obsessive' when your harassive inclined bum chum has been up to it for the last six months. Pretty much every post I've made on this account since then he's jumped on, he's been there in seconds. The words 'total' 'butthurt' and 'utter twat' spring to mind.

Lewis is only bothered and persistent because he knows I have him down as the pathetic little cünt he really is.

Happy dayz, morons.

Insanely, mind-blowingly, gorgeous and sexy. I have to pace myself with this film, seeing it no more than every few years so that I can experience it/him fresh all over again. Oh to have been Susannah York...

reply

Ha ha, you read my mind - I was going to ask if you'd seen "Women in Love," where I first fell in love with him. Yes, a gorgeous, gorgeous man, whom many of us young women lusted after in the 60s/70s.

reply

>>It's his eyes I think.<<

the scene where after he makes breakfast, he's looking into her eyes as they sit across from each other drinking tea---my god! men-take note!



*Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion!*

reply

You're making me remember he was also in the much-later movie "An Unmarried Woman," with Jill Clayburgh - remember that? He made a big splash with women once again in that role. Those two had the most torrid affair! We all wanted to be Jill.
