Streetcar Named Desire– a bare chested sweaty Marlon Brando yells at the top of his lungs from the bottom of the stairs, “Stella! Hey, Stella” like a sexy mating call sizzling with promise that makes her fly into his arms proving to audiences everywhere that words are superfluous… Seriously, who wouldn’t?
Dr. No- “Bond, James Bond” Sean Connery matter of factedly states what will become the epitome of sexy, smooth and debonair manly behavior propelling British hunks to infinity and beyond…Must I point out that Sean Connery is Scottish? Yes, I must!
