    I'm 5'1. The tallest guy I ever dated was 6'5. You can't do anything standing up! 6'2 is a very nice height for a guy. I would have been "his Natalie" to his height

    Wow, I'm actually taller than someone! I'm 5'5" give a hair or two. So I'd be his Leslie Caron (well, she's a little shorter too), or his Cher (if she really was one of his conquests) or...... Goldie Hawn (though she is a bit taller than me, if she really was another one of his quickies)......
    My tallest BF was 6'3", that was annoying enough. Still, I prefer guys around that height over shorties (5'10" and below).

    To start the week off with a smile (and a drool )


    Always great with the lovely, gorgeous Julie Christie (even in dorky glasses )


    From one of my all time favorite Beatty movies, the legendary "Shampoo" pic #1 with director Hal Ashby, center cool on his motor bike and last nice ass and loooong legs, sigh.


    Young, beautiful and innocent in "Splendor In The Grass", cozy with Liz Taylor in "The Only Game In Town" and back to his old football past in "Heaven Can Wait"


    Naughty look in cowboy hat in the chilling "Parallax View"

    It's always lovely to hear Warren talk (ooh, that light voice). Just too bad the picture is so small. Warren, at about age 45, discussing director George Stevens.

    Nothing beats a solid male friendship (and nothing can make men act as silly,
    as a male friendship! )
    Warren and Dustin Hoffman knew each other from a distance since the early
    sixties, but their friendship came to full bloom while filming Ishtar and has since
    only deepened.

    One thing is for sure, Warren is an extremely loyal friend, whose friendships
    last for decades (he's even friends with most of his ex-lovers!)


    ^The scene in the dessert, when they think they're being saved


    ^Promo pictures


    ^This promo pic especially had me peeing my pants from laughter


    ^Recording their wonderful songs for the soundtrack of Ishtar


    ^Since then, the boys have learned to behave themselves a bit more.

    They are adorable. They can make you laugh and break your heart. I'm voting for one more team up with them.

    I named my cat after Dustin when I was 13. Back then you could go to the movies weekly and see Pacino, Nicholson, Hoffman and DeNiro in the same week.

    I need to own Dick Tracy. Pacino was hysterical and Dustin was so funny as "Mumbles".

    You need to get yourself a multi region or region free DVD player and I can hook you up with Dick Tracy pronto.
    Ya gotta love how in one scene, Tracy/Warren steps over Mumbles' bed, drives him in a corner and lifts him off his feet while asking that one question, heehee.
    (Haven't found another Ishtar DVD yet since I got mine, but am still hopeful. Even if Warren's DVD's are all bare bones with barely extras, they're still worth having!)

    Warren's first movie, "Splendor in the Grass" with co-star Natalie Wood,
    was filmed from April 1960 - August 1960. During the filming, Natalie was
    in a troubled first marriage to Robert Wagner and Warren was engaged
    to Joan Collins.
    The movie went into post-production during which time Warren was cast
    by Tennessee Williams in person (after a lot of persuasion by Warren
    himself ) for the part of Italian gigolo Paulo Di Leo, in his second big
    movie "The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone" opposite big name Vivien Leigh.

    With Joan Collins, who also had to film in Europe, Warren moved to England
    where much of "Mrs. Stone" would be shot. Filmed in late 1960/early 1961,
    the movie was the second last movie of Vivien Leigh.
    She, at 47/48 years old, played the 50-ish widowed actress Karen Stone
    (at the time that 50 was quite a lot older than it is these days) who falls prey
    to the Contessa (Lotte Lenya) and one of her prettiest boys, gigolo
    Paulo (Warren, then 24).
    Although badly criticized in many reviews for his "awful" Italian accent, it must
    be said that Tennessee Williams, Vivien Leigh and some important critics were
    very pleased with Warren's work.
    Personally I was pleasantly surprised when I finally got to see and hear
    this much criticized part of him. I've heard much worse attempts at
    foreign accents, such as Kevin Kline ("French" in "French Kiss"),
    Johnny Depp ("Spanish" in "Don Juan de Marco"), Billy Zane ("Spanish"
    in "Claim") etc.

    Warren is exceptionally beautiful in this movie and so looks right for the
    part of the sleezy, spoiled, lazy gigolo Paulo. The character is about as
    far removed from his real personality as possible. As Paulo, Warren is a
    lazy user, who smokes and drinks. Quiet Beatty in real life was and is
    much more "wholesome" as far as such vices go, not being a smoker or
    drinker. You can clearly see the movie is a product of its time, as
    everybody constantly lights up a cigarette or is already smoking one!
    Vivien Leigh is still beautiful, be it slightly older looking than she
    was at that time. Thick layers of make-up cannot hide that fact.
    I was especially amazed to see how much Vivien resembled Warren's
    sister Shirley MacLaine in some scenes!
    You can clearly see the differences in the acting between the older
    and younger generation in this movie. Lotte Lenya and Vivien Leigh
    both have a rather static, very stage-like way of acting, while Warren
    is clearly of the looser, Method acting style. All in all, it is interesting to
    view, but very, very slow for today's standards.
    I think this is one of Tennessee Williams' plays that does not really
    translate well to the screen. At least, not in this version by first time
    director Josť Quintero, who up until then had only been an assistant
    director. Warren knew from the get-go that the movie would not be
    as good as it potentially could be, because of this.
    Just having had his debut part directed by the legendary Elia Kazan,
    his second movie was quite a letdown in the directorial department.

    Vivien only had six more years to live after making this movie, in which
    she filmed only one more time. At the time of filming, she'd just divorced
    from Laurence Olivier after a 20 year marriage. Her health, both physical
    and mental, starting to fail, she was quite fragile and somewhat demanding
    toward Warren.
    His fiancee, Joan Collins, visited the set and got the impression that
    Vivien Leigh was really infatuated with Warren, despite the fact that
    she was twice his age. Vivien, who had leading-man approval for this
    movie, had personally insisted Warren be chosen, even if Tennessee
    Willams would disagree.
    She wasn't shy to admit in interviews she was smitten by the much
    younger Warren. This is an actual quote from her>
    "He is simply beautiful and perfect for the part. I'm drawn to his eyes, his long
    eye-lashes and his mouth is very sensual.
    I can see how easy it would be to fall for such physical splendor."



    After shooting for the movie finished, Warren stayed on in Europe to
    vacation in Rome without Joan who'd more or less ended their relationship
    after Vivien's attentions for Warren on the set of Mrs. Stone became a bit
    too much for her.
    In Rome, Warren had a brief fling with Susan Strassberg. Then he had to
    return home, to Los Angeles. But first he and Joan reconciled. Not as
    lovers, but as friends. They continued living together until each had
    found a new home.
    Then he had to start promotion on "Splendor in the Grass" with Natalie Wood,
    now separated from Robert Wagner.
    During his promotional tour with Natalie, the two young and freshly single stars fell in love......

    "Splendor" was released in the fall of 1961 and his debut was very well received.
    Reviews for "Mrs. Stone", released in December of 1961, were much less
    favorable, partly due to the movie's content.
    The very puritanical critics mostly fell over the fact that the story was about
    (a) male whore(s) with a female pimp (Lotte Lenya). Yep, times sure have changed.
    Warren was shocked by the reviews and after his only other project of 1961,
    "All Fall Down" (his third movie), he went into a deep hiatus and self analysis
    period that lasted 3 years, contemplating his future in the movie business.

    Oh it's too early here to be thinking about Roman Spring. My laugh muscles aren't awake yet.

    I have a multi region dvd player. How else do you think I watch this one's movies. He costs me a fortune.
    <----------------------
    Ishtar will be out on dvd in August here.

    Ya know, WB has had like only two hairstyles in his life. The early one (Splendor, Bonnie) and then the "70's" WB. I'm not counting the period films, though his hair was perfection in Reds. With that face, I would have loved to have seen him in a very short style just once.

    LOL, Chalet. I finally got to see (and buy) it. But I didn't find it as much funny as you did, than I found it boring and slow. It's probably one of those plays that should have remained a play. Having a first time director doing it, didn't help much either. And really, I'm being serious here, I didn't find his attempt at an Italian accent half as bad as I feared, certainly not compared to the examples I mentioned in my Mrs. Stone post. Remember Nick Nolte in "Lorenzo's Oil"? Now THAT was bad!
    But I'd still watch Mrs. Stone if only because he's friggin' gorgeous in it. Slick, but gorgeous.

    Re: the hairstyles. You're right. I guess that marks the greats. Look at Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Greg Peck, Cary Grant etc. They ALL only had 1 or 2 hairstyles during their entire career (or lives even!). They weren't such attention whores like Pitt and all these guys today. More sissies when it comes to haircuts than women

    P.S. Let me know if the Ishtar DVD that's coming in August will finally have something extra on it. The Mrs. Stone DVD has a short documentary on it. That's a first bonus on any Warren DVD's so far, aside from trailers and typed bios.

Thank God he doesn't resort to Botox or other plastic surgery, or make up tricks to try and look as good as he once did, he's wise enough to know that ain't possible EVER! Warren rules!!!
