    No contest! The first one is staid and fairly flat, but the second looks, as I seem to recall you saying in the preview post, burnished. The light shining off Jimmy’s face, hair, and clothes almost seems to emerge from within. I love the interplay of darkness and light, and the way Stewart’s head appears to *loom* benignantly. You’d make a great personal tutor, Vickie!

    What soft and yet, at once, enquiring eyes.
    Oh for the days when leading men had faces and not just muscles to be noticed.
    Yours ever

        My correspondence has been attended to.. a reply should be with you by now.
        Needless to say though, I should be delighted.

    Hear, hear, Monsieur Dandy! May I hazard the suggestion it has something to with the culture? Muscles and blank faces… Ptui!

    I kind of appreciate the first photo for that important element of sadness that he often carried around as if it weighed down his shoulders…

    He’s my all-time favorite, my go-to guy, my dream lover, my muse. Egads, he was beautiful.

    Ted was a genius photographer, you could never see where the light was coming from !
    He was also a very kind and charismatic man and he was also my landlord !
    When I asked to sign a contract when I took the house he said ” if you don’t like the house you’ll leave and if we don’t like you you’ll leave ” !!!!
    That was 4o years ago !

      Hello, Stanley!
      He conjured starlight, didn’t he? I get the same feeling looking at his photographs as I get looking at a painting. The art behind the scenes of Hollywood is so fascinating, it makes this a uniquely magical place, thank you for your contributions.
