    Tyrone Power

    Was it true, all that stuff about Ty wanting to be in an accident that would wreck his face? I mean, I know he said he did, but I don't know if that was a one-time thing or if he was genuinely as miserable as his IMDb page made him out to be.

    She died young, too. Brutal.

    Oh, I don't know about that. I thought Rita's character was the bland one!

    That scene saved my seventeen-year-old soul. ...Wait. Three other films? What?

    They were like night and day. Flynn was all about the flashiness and charisma, but there was something more subtle and much darker in Power. There were hints of it even in his more traditionally heroic roles, and he got to bring it out in films like Nightmare Alley and Witness for the Prosecution. Flynn wasn't all style and no substance as an actor, either, but he possessed invigorating energy instead of Power's dark magnetism. They complemented each other. I think that's why I love both men so much, and why I could never choose one of them over the other. And who thinks Ty should've co-starred with Linda Darnell more often? They had some really nice chemistry together, maybe not Errol-and-Olivia levels, but still great.

    I'll keep an eye out for it.

    I just finished watching Nightmare Alley. I am not joking when I say that I had to lie down and wait for my nerves to glue themselves back together before I was calm enough to think (and type) clearly. I'm still shaking a little bit. I have a few minor complaints. First, the movie didn't end so much as it just stopped. Second, I was expecting the Hanged Man card to show up again after Stanton's fall from grace, and it didn't. You want a motif, you've got to carry it all the way through. Third, the Death card does not signify actual death. (Though it does signify change, which is what happened, so same difference.) But Ty lived up to his surname, as usual, so I'm not unhappy, just screwed up. That movie messes with your head, sort of like its main character. Adrenaline rush doesn't begin to cover it.

    Top Ten Favorite Movies

    I can't rank them by preference, so I'll present them in chronological order instead: Captain Blood (1935) The Mark of Zorro (1940) Mary Poppins (1964) The Sting (1973) Star Wars (1977) Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) TRON (1982) Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) How To Train Your Dragon (2010) Frozen (2013) That was hard!

    A.k.a. the only memorable thing about that movie. Well, Errol's hilarious in it, but...yeah, still unmemorable. There's something intensely emotional about watching two of your first crushes smile at each other and salute each other a la Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean.

    More or less, yes. I'm very bad at explanations, but I'll try and explain what I meant. Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power don't look like how you expect action heroes to look. They're not rugged or muscular like Cary Grant, or Harrison Ford, or Gerard Butler. They're more slender, more refined facially, and, yes, more graceful--an adjective typically associated with women. Like Leslie Howard, or Elvis Presley, or, to use a more contemporary example, Harry Styles. (Yeah, I know. The ultimate insult, comparing someone to an ex-boybander. I swear I mean all of this in the most complimentary way possible.) They're not any less masculine for it. It's just a different kind of masculinity.

    And I for one think it's a great pity that we'll never know if he was right. Because that is a hot mental image.

    That's actually the first movie I ever saw him in, and one of my favorite movies in general.

    The Razor's Edge made me cry. I had no clue he could act like that.

    Tyrone Power

    He looks like a woman in Captain Blood. Or at least a young Leonardo DiCaprio. Also, is it me, or does Power resemble Valentino a lot? They even played the same role in Blood and Sand.

    The ironic thing is that I'm pretty sure Errol and Tyrone, two action stars, would be considered effeminate by today's standards. That's not a bad thing. It just amuses me.
