Who’s the coolest Paul Newman, or Steve McQueen? It’s a tough call. I’d have always just about come down on the side of Mr McQueen, despite Mr Newman’s salad dressing, Cool Hand Luke, and his rendition of Plastic Jesus (check it out here if you haven’t heard it yet). But this is the final bit of evidence that swings it for Newman. And, until I see photographic evidence of McQueen on a Lammie, it’s definative. Paul Newman is the coolest. End of.
Rock Huson, dressing to match his Series 2 Lambretta, with Gina Lollobrigida in the background. A publicity postcard from the film Come September I’d imagine…
That’s an early model Lambretta. VERY early…
“Excuse me centurion… could you tell me the way to the nearest Lambretta dealer?”Reminded me of this (Sorry, no scooters).
Love this picture of the late, great Tony Curtis on an LD. That’s the actor Tony Curtis, not my good mate, the equally great, and thankfully not late Tony Curtis.
Who incidentally is also a Lambretta aficionado. Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked here, the main pint of this post is to find out what movie this picture was from… any film buff Lambretta lovers out there?
Answers in a postcard, or, and this is probably easier, in the comments.
Checking the IMCDB (Internet Movie Car Database) I’ve found the film this still is from – a movie called “Paris – When It SIzzles” from 1964, a film I can’t believe I haven’t seen as it stars, amongst others; William Holden, Audrey Hepburn, Noël Coward, Marlene Dietrich and Frank Sinatra. It’s on my ‘to watch’ list!
