Curio: Nathan Gelgud's Movie Trios

Alexa from Pop Elegantiarum here with some more film curiosities. I love a great film-inspired doodle (Nathaniel's iPhone doodles are always a treat), and Brooklyn cartoonist Nathan Gelgud doesn't disappoint in that department. These fantastic "Movie Trios" are all still available at his etsy shop!


Here is François Truffaut's hero Jean-Pierre Léaud, caught between his older and younger lovers (Delphine Seyrig and Claude Jade) in Stolen Kisses.

Next in his chronology is Miou-Miou in Bertrand Biller's film Going Places, shown between her two thuggish men (Patrick Dewaere and Gérard Depardieu).


Finally, my favorite is After Hours (oh how I love Scorcese's quirky 80s noir), where Nathan draws the suicidal Rosanna Arquette between John Heard and Griffin Dunne. I like how he's placed Arquette in the middle; she really put the whole mess into motion, after all.

Nathan will also draw any custom Movie Trio that you want. So I've been thinking of other film trios I'd love to see from more recent decades. Maybe Bess, Jan and Dodo from Breaking The Waves? Ray, Ken and Harry from In Bruges?

Nathaniel, whatever happened to that contest from last year where the bloggers sent you their favourite poet and who should play them in a movie? Did you ever post the results?

Though it makes me turn in my "man card", the "Bridget Jones" trio (Firth, Grant and Zellwegger) is a good one.
The Dark Knight's trio (Bale, Ledger, and Eckhart), maybe the Pirates of the Carribean one? or (and I'm stretching here) James Van Der Beek, Ian Somerholder, and Shannon Sossaman from The Rules of Attraction?

I love the Stolen Kisses one! Such a wonderful and original choice.

I guess he only does trios, but the Bride betwixt the DiVAS from Kill Bill would be excellent. Or if you're stuck on three, then just Budd, Beatrix, and Elle to represent Vol. 2!

ooh Adrian. Good choice!

there are so many great threesomes in films though because there are millions upon millions of romantic triangles in movies.

how about Rick, Ilsa and Victor from Casablanca?!

or Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo & James Dean from REBEL.

Just because I'm in a tv mood...Spike, Buffy, and Angel ;-)

The cast of Vicky Cristina Barcelona counts as a foursome, right?

A good idea could be William Hurt, Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter in Broadcast News.
