The Fabulous Mr Bridges
Ooh... I should have noticed this earlier... The British Film Institute is putting on a retrospective of one of my favourite film actors.
Not only is the man gorgeous and talented (yes please!), he has been in some brilliant movies... he acted Clint off the screen in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, was superbly understated in The Fabulous Baker Boys, survived in the wonderful Fearless, managed to make pony tails acceptable in The Fisher King and turned dressing gowns into daywear in The Big Lebowski.
I've only just discovered Jeff's website... it's fab... full of music and photos and clips... he just gets more appealing by the minute!
I could have easily put together a collection of bridges but I decided to have more fun with this one... see if you can get identify these 12 films he's been in...
