Two dudes for the price of one here. I remember clearly lusting after a seersucker suit when I first saw the movie W.U.S.A on TV in about 1982. I can’t remember it ever having been on UK TV since then. Of course the movie was a Newman vehicle but Perkins was excellent in it too.

This image comes from a LIFE magazine spread on Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. It’s also been dug up before by Decline & Fall over on Film Noir Buff. Whenever I find these images myself I always find that the boy has been there first!


  1. No. He can’t be making paella, that’s just too good to be true. You can’t have one of the world’s hottest men AND paella at the same time.
