I noticed some smoke rising out of one of my more neglected photo files the other day, and I finally realized it was these smoldering caps from Forgotten that were the culprits! Surprised

These caps are so unapologetically hot--how could I forget about them?! That had to be one fun filming day for Zara Turner (oh come on--she had to find him irresistable, too!! Surprised ). I think these might be Em's caps, bless her heart--she has a terrific eye for the sensual, don't you think? Wink I'll be adding them to the Forgotten photo thread, too. Smile

Damn...


That has to smell really, really, GOOD...



Ok, now you smell me...
(I call this one Paul's 'Cary Grant pic'. *SIGH* )




...and this is what happens!!

I'm with ya, Akka! It's only too bad they had to be interrupted by the boarder from hell, you know? Dang Rachel and her lurking tendencies, anyway! Evil or Very Mad Wink

I love the playfulness of his love scenes with Natty (and don't even get me started on the kitchen-counter hoisting business...)

Paul appears to have carried his leading several times, like in The Rainbow. the Doctor Who TV Movie, and Sea of Souls (will find applicable images).

You have to be strong to pick up an adult in your arms.
Huh-Gah!

Very oh-so-hot piccies...the sniff of skin...so simple and yet so sensuous

It was a Frank Capra moment....remember that scene from It's a Wonderful Life, when Donna Reed is talking on the phone and then Jimmy Stewart is called over to share in listening on the same phone! You know Donna Reed had this very thing in mind, too. Their heads are close together, and every so often while she's speaking to the caller, JImmy Stewart turns his head just so as if to take in the smell of her hair or her neck, and then when she turns to look at him, he quickly averts his nose and eyes as if he sniffing her but then goes back at it....HOLY KEEER---RIPES! That was pretty damn sexy stuff.

Gosh, I wonder what Paul's neck smells like.

Of course, some of those side glances Eugene makes at Lizzie in the first part of OMF when he first meets her are close competitors to that scene in It's a Wonderful Life.

When Eugene is carrying on a conversation about the body that was found, but he's distracted as well, and his eyes and his thoughts are drawn across the room to her...


And...this goes on through that whole scene. His head is tilted at a curious angle...



It's about the hottest bit of hottness I've seen on film without having the two romance leads in the same frame. I mean, they're across the room from each other!

Whoah!

And the steam is fogging up the mirrors![img][/img]

Uh Oh....Did you say....Kitchen Counter Hoisting?

Now, you've got my imagination going. Will have to rewatch that scene!

And come to think of it, hoist, to me is a sexy nautical term. Hmmmm!!! Wink

Mm hmm--yeah--I did! Very Happy He's got her up there in that third cap (you know, I've got this on DVD--I should try my hand at capping with that whole sequence! Surprised ), before Miss 'Oh, did I show up at a bad time?' walks in ruins a perfectly good gratuitous fangirl moment!! (Errrggghh... Evil or Very Mad )

Yeah, Natty's in this really feminine, long full skirt, too, and (gosh, I have to watch this myself again, too, for the details) as they're kissing he starts getting kind of worked up, and sort of gently bulldozes her up there with a smile on his face, if I remember--and then Rachel wrecks the whole thing. Confused

Oh yeah--I know the exact moment you mean from It's a Wonderful Life! There's something far sexier about those kind of things than blatant sex scenes, isn't there? The opening scene of The Cameraman (Buster Keaton) is one of my favorites for that reason, when Buster is pushed up into this girl by a crowd of newsreel cameramen, and he's intoxicated by her scent, kind of like this, which is actually from one of his other films:



And yes! Those subtly nuanced looks on Eugene's face when he first notices Lizzie--a Victorian gentleman trying to keep his counsel, yet his admiration can't help but filter through. That is such heady stuff! Reminds me of the scene in The Wrong War, too, when Horatio first notices Mariette (whom I know no one likes, but still...) on the steps--GUH! The look on his face--very potent--if they could only bottle that, who'd need Viagra!

Thanks for posting all your Forgotten caps, too, Maddy! This is one of my absolute favorite Paul films (series)--he's fantastic in this. Smile

Darn that Carla!!

Forgotten was a gorgeously filmed series. Beautiful music too.

One of these days, Paul will get a sweet and well written romance film where he can do some serious uninterrupted hoisting of the kind, and more neck sniffing.

**THUD!!**


Yes, we demand more uninterrupted hoisting and neck sniffing!! Very Happy (There's just something about that word, hoist...)

Maybe I should've called this thread 'The Unbearable Hotness of Ben-ing'. Wink

Yes, there is.
It connotes the physical---physical action, physical energy, earthy, basic, tactile, immediate...I won't say what it rhymes with! Twisted Evil

You mean...*looks both ways*... joist?? Shocked

Why Maddy, you embarrass me with your insinuations of supportive floor timber erotica!! Surprised Embarassed

Laughing No, I'm just having fun with you Wink--I know exactly what word you're thinking of--my mind was wallowing in the gutter right along with yours ma'am... Laughing

In fact somewhere there's a great limerick waiting to be written using those very three words, I think... Wink

Yes, yes, hoisting's good. Particularly the uninterrupted variety. Carla needs to get a hobby and quit walking in on other people's hoisting activities, ASAP.

I just saw Forgotten, yet again, last night. I love the scene
where he asks her, "Do you want to have sex or talk about
my family?"

Now there IS a stupid question? SEX! PLEASE!! It is Paul we're
talking about, isn't it? Reason Enough! Very Happy Very Happy

Exactly, Catherine!
Great line, there. I'd Forgotten it...

A limerick is probably in order....
