Were they wearing underwear?

When the guy twirls before the "Flashdance" bit there is a flash of his naked bottom- I imagine they wear jocks beneath the kilts - hmm a mystery worth investigating...:rolleyes:

Hopefully, you'll be able to solve this perplexing mystery.

If not, there's the following evidence.

This made me giggle. In What a Way to Go Newman played a caricature of the free-loving, free-living artist (European version) and, in his paint-splattered jeans and T shirt, he'd be the perfect male stand-in for The Sandpiper.

I had the same idea in mind- originally I thought of Brando for the artist but that would have been to heavy- Newman is more fun and one can imagine him grabbing Burton and rolling around the surf:rolleyes:

Just imagine Burton instead of McClaine;)

 

Gasp! Thanks for that. I love that it includes the whole art-house foreign movie parody from the What a Way to Go

Newman had the ultimate male body, with perfect definition and tone. So many men's bodies from that era don't pass the test of time under today's standards, but his was timeless.

I like the way they slow down the video and the music makes it a lot sexier- yes Paul Newman is a timeless icon of male beauty

Holden and Madison as lovers would have been hot

 Ira Levin's novel is such a terrific thriller -none of the movie adaptations have come close.

It's Fleet Week in NYC- which always makes me think of "On the Town" if this was remade now at least one of those sailors would be gay- curiously in the last Broadway revival the boys remain straight....
