Ronald Colman, 1931

There's a really special energy about this picture... unfortunately I don't know anything about its history, other than that it was one of those somebody-found-a-bunch-of-old-pictures-in-some-attic situations (in California). That's all. But if you're perceptive you can feel that some pictures have a stronger energy than others when you hold them in your hands, and this one has something so intriguing about it that I often take it out from my folder and look at it. And not because he's so darn beautiful... although he totally is. Damn it, Ronnie, you were a babe. A terrific actor, too, but virtually forgotten these days, although he's appreciated by classic film lovers everywhere.
