Welcome to the Library Nancy!!
When I first saw Withnail and I, I wasn't too sure what to make of it. Since then, I've seen it several times and I've grown to love it. A movie which includes a curly haired Paul just adds to the charm.

Thanks!! Smile

When I started watching the movie, I didn't know what to make of it. It took me a little while to fully wrap my head around it. By the end, though, I was absolutely in love with it (it's fully the reason I went to Regent's Park three weeks ago). And I cannot tell a lie, if it were up to me, his hair would always look like that. The photos I've seen where it's practically nonexistent just make me cry. (I can't help it. I have this deep and abiding affection for fabulous hair...and it's just criminal to cut it!)

Yes, Paul looks better with hair IMHO (and the longer, the better, along with a bit of scruff). Smile

I agree.....He does look better when his hair is a bit longer(such as his look in Forgotten). Add some stubble and the man is dangerous....... Laughing Laughing

Forgotten is in my Netflix queue, so hopefully I'll get to see it soon! And isn't he dangerous all the time, pretty much? (I'm still especially prone to landing on the floor during that bath scene in Withnail myself--nothing else has had quite the same effect yet!)

I hope for your sake it's a soft landing... Laughing Laughing

Forgotten is one of my favorites and it's worth watching. There are others such as Sweet Revenge and the Hanging Gale which I really enjoy(although the Hanging Gale is very hard to watch because of it's gritty and authentic portrayal of the Irish Potato Famine). This last one is a favorite of mine since all of the McGann Brothers are in it.

Fortunately, it's not too far from the couch to the floor Wink

(Hanging Gale is in my Netflix queue as well. God bless Netflix! And my local library should be emailing me to pick up Fairy Tale any day now. Might have to get Hornblower again while I'm there, even though I only watched finished them a few weeks ago!)

OMG! Do I EVER agree with you ladies that
the longer the better when it comes to hair!
Especially, a gorgeous head of curls like Paul
has! It is criminal to cut that loveliness! I just
want to run my fingers through those lovely,
soft, tousled curls.

I actually started to cry the first time I saw "W & I",
when those delightful curls bit the dust at the end. It
was horrible. I don't think I need to tell you the
nightmares that "Alien 3" gave me! Those shaved
heads were more terrifying than the alien IMO. I
found them actually physically painful on the eyes!

Oh yes, the longer the better when it comes to hair!

Catherine

Me too!! I was just heartbroken! If you could see my hard drive, it wouldn't take you long to notice that the hair is an important element of all the pics I have saved! It really should be illegal to cut that hair!

One of my twins goes for the buzz look, but then he likes to play basketball and doesn't like hair to get in his face ala Phoenix Suns pointguard Steve Nash. His twin brother has long hair that goes halfway down his back and that he usually wears in a ponytail.

My brother had fabulous hair when he was in high school, but after he got married and started losing it, he started cutting it much shorter (it reminded me of George Clooney in his later ER years--and I was sad when he cut his, too!). Now I think it's about a quarter-inch long at any given time. I'm sort of used to it, but I do keep forgetting that my brother with the beautiful hair is practically bald by his own hand. When we were going through old pictures last week, my mother literally belted me when I said "Oh look, there he is when he used to have hair!" I didn't mean it maliciously, just sort of...wow, it really was real at one point, I didn't make it up!

I'm not sure where I got my affection for, as a friend puts it, boy hair, but I sure got it somewhere! One of these days, I'm sure it's going to get me in trouble!

I was talking to Stephen McGann about this when he was in Footloose recently. Someone had brought some photos from years ago to show him (of himself) and he was showing Sam and I. It was a time when his hair was longish and I commented on the fact that I'd really liked that look and he should consider growing it again! He agreed and said he'd really liked it that way but it took so long to grow that he didn't think he would do it again. A crying shame in my book!

My son's got the most beautiful thick, surprisingly
tangle-free copper red hair you've ever seen! It's
gorgeous! It's about to the bottom of his shoulder
blades-which both he and I consider to be medium
length. I just love his hair!

When he was nine years old, I asked him if he wanted
to grow his hair(it was in an ear length "serf" cut then)
to please me or himself. Ever the little diplomat, he
actually thought he was giving the right answer when
he said, "Both.". I told him, "No Simon. Your hair is your
business. You do what your heart tells you. Don't grow
it to please me and don't cut it to please society. You do
what's right for you." He listened. So I know that beautiful
hair exists for the right reasons, which makes me love it and
my son all the more! I'm glad he follow every style and fad.

Catherine

Oh, it's so nice to know that I'm not alone!! Smile And maybe my hair just grows really fast, but I gotta say--just forgetting to get it cut for a month or two, which I do occasionally do, is enough to make a big difference, so it shouldn't take that long! But, alas... it's not my hair and I don't get a vote.

I think all the guys in the McGann family were blessed with beautiful hair. Although in the photos I've seen, Joe seems to be the one to have straight hair while Paul, Mark and Stephen all had curls(when they had longer hair)...
