Now there, Sal, is a truly terrifying thought...Not the curmudgeon part
- - the acting part.:-) The last time I was on state was, if what's left
as memory serves me right, junior year in HS when I played Mrs. Somebody
or other - all male boarding school :-) - a walk-on in The Man Who Came
to Dinner, and had one line, something having to do with "calves' foot
jelly." :-)

Le Grand Hank? How Mason Adams? Right age. Vaguely the right look.
Curmudgeon with a twinkle in his eye?

    Robert Capa  is one of my heros, the thought of Brad Pitt or Rob
Lowe playing him in a movie sents chills down my spine.
   The screen play isn't even written! I don't think anyone has been
cast in the leading roll.
    Personally, I don't know who should play Capa, but as to the who
should play "Le Grande Hank," that's Henri Cartier-Bresson, if you want
to be politically correct (I don't). The part needs a true curmudgeon.
The best curmudgeon, I know is our own BD Colen!!! :-)

Happy Snaps,
