Wow, thanks Richard. You are doing such a great job of re-posting these photos but I really now appreciate the wonderful work that Eva did in capturing them and preserving them for all of us to enjoy. I never knew her but her work is truly amazing. It is so great to be able to zoom into these terrific photos and get a close up view. It is no wonder that even those of us who never knew Eva miss her so much.
I love this movie because I love watching Audie as he became older and, like most men, dang it, acquired even more interesting facial features.
Gerry, I feel so the same as you do about Eva. All of us here at this site are reaping the rewards of her gracious generosity in sharing her amazing collection of photos. Her story, too, is a great source of inspiration. I would have loved to have known her.
Also, Gerry, I love Audie as he aged as well, and I find that I lean most heavily to his 1958 and later films. He really was like fine wine, wasn't he? Improving with age. Oh, he was cute as a 20-something, but as he got into his mid-30's and 40's, the little boy looks gave way to a gorgeous mature handsomeness. And in Bloody Beach
, he's got that wonderful touch of gray. Dagnabit! There's such a double standard---guys looks great with a bit of gray (or even all gray), but we gals just look old and dowdy...so we color until we die!!
