Fantastic stills, Estelle. Thanks so much for sharing them. Smile

I cannot wait to watch this video! Very Happy

It looks like they're getting their jeans signed. Now why didn't I think of that! Surprised

The next set of images cracks me up!...Paul kept his tongue stuck out for a few moments on the video and looked thoughtful.
Has Em seen these yet? Wink

Were they auctioning off the second Marwood coat, btw? (I thought I saw 'Christies' in the background there.) Do they mention what they got for it?

Great caps, Estelle--I don't think you missed a frame! I'm really excited to see this now, too! Very Happy

And to think I just put 27 and 16 together a few weeks back, and realized he was 'Benvolio' in the 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet--and I used to drool over him in Tiger Beat magazine when I was twelve! Surprised

Who on earth, knew? It's no wonder he was hit on
by Franco Zefferelli before they even started filming...


I watched Franco Zeffirelli's production of Romeo & Juliet for the first time yesterday. Bruce was great in it. Smile I do think he got a lot sexier with age though. I'd take Brian Lovell (his Still Crazy character) over Benvolio any day, and not just because of the tights!

Did you? Surprised Wow, I haven't seen that in over thirty years! He was actually good in it, huh? I was probaby too young to notice at the time Wink... I'll have to see if I can get that off Netflix, and take a stroll down memory lane.

Yeah, he was very 'pretty' when he was young, wasn't he? (Not unlike a certain scouse actor whom he later directed. Wink ) Time has added a lot of character and rugged handsomeness to his face, I think.

Paul was very 'pretty' when he was young, too. So much so, he won nearly all of the female parts in his all-boy primary school theatrical productions. There are a few pics of him and his brothers as young boys floating around--I always seemed to wind up posting them at the old Libraries--I suppose I should get them up here, too! Very Happy Will do.

Perhaps I was being generous. A tad. Very Happy

Bruce Robinson was certainly beautiful in that film. The older Robinson reminds me of DeForest Kelly who played Dr. Leonard McCoy in Star Trek (and in some pictures of Paul as Mr. Bush, I'm reminded of Michael Palin).

Really Estelle? You'll have to point out which ones to me sometime. Smile

Well you can envy me even more for not having any clue whatsoever! lol Who are they? Mediocrely talented has-been publicity mongers who annoyingly show up at every photo-op event and leech off the auras of truely gifted performers, perhaps?

(In truth, I almost thought that was Eric Roberts there--but that would just be wrong on so many levels. Wink )

First of all; Wauw Estelle, your talent for doing caps==> Surprised Don't hold it back, the caps are awesome!!!
Teri; Posh and Becks are David -Becks- BeckhamVictoria -posh- Adams akka Mrs Beckham. He is Englands golden boy in football (Soccer) and she is a singer. She kind of 'made' him as in created the right image for him. They are very hot Europe. Kind of the golden couple with whom everything is shiny. (althoug it is never all sunshine and no storm in ANY marriage....) Well, now you know Wink .

How long does it usually take for packages to get from the States to the UK? It hasn't arrived yet.

You can say that again!!!
I wonder if you can rent Still Crazy here??? I'll have to check that out..

It didn't realize it was Bruce Robinson playing the part of Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet. I've seen that film quite a few times over the years....You learn something new every day!

I received one of the books I ordered which is Withnail & I(by Kevin Jackson)
part of the BFI Modern Classics collection. While giving a bit of a synopsis of the film, it also gives some of Bruce's own experiences at the time. It's not a big book but it's a fascinating little read nonetheless.

Withnail's overcoat went for 5000 pounds bought by Chris Evans
The "Crow Crag Farm" sign for 600 pounds
Richard Grant's annotated script for 5000 pounds
An original manuscript of the Withnail novel for 6600 pounds bought by screenwriter Richard Curtis(Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill)
which Curtis returned to Robinson

In all, over 100,000 pounds was raised at the auction and the proceeds were going towards an educational fund in Grant's hometown of Swaziland.
Not too shabby for a small independant movie that no one wanted to distribute.....
