So as an original member of the Loyal Order of the Gilded Moose I felt a pang of guilt today on "Nice Friday" that I just trashed Mel Gibson.
As penance I display this picture of Mel with Diane Keaton in the undervalued Mrs. Soffel from the 1980s. Yes, Mel really did look like that. For all of you youngsters out there: This is why the world became obsessed with him. Not this movie. This face.
Before the crazy bearded 'i'm as looney as Tom Cruise and I didn't even need Scientology!' evangelical auteur days, he was just a gorgeous and talented movie actor. Good times.
