Every time somebody mentions David Soul (who I don't know) I think of Illya Kuryakin (whom I also never was allowed to watch, but still had a crush on). The actor's name was David McCallum .... and his onscreen partner's last name was Solo. So, there's no connection to the name above, except that this "David" and his partner's character name "Solo" *always* make me go look up Kuryakin to find out that yeah, I was wrong to think of them. Sheesh!
LOL...you are obviously a bit younger than I. Those are gentlemen from VERY different generations. I had a MAD crush on "Ilya" (David McCallum) when I was a child, watching The Man from Uncle with my folks. Robert Vaughn played the estimable, smooth, Napoleon Solo. (My neighbor's standard poodle became Napoleon!).

Later, in the 70s, many young women of late-teen/early 20 years were smitten with Soul and the actor that played his partner--on TV's Starsky and Hutch--Paul-Michael Glaser, if memory serves. Neither was my particular cuppa, but I do remember many girls thinking both/either of them eminently, er, "doable." :-)

Well...they're both blondish, (Soul and McCallum) if that helps, but aside from that, they're nothing alike, lol.

It was an okay movie. It, unfortunately, suffered from what many movies in the 1970s suffer from: sudden, loud and jarring sounds or music. Another example is Don't Look Now. I hate that.

That doesn't mean that todays movies (and some tv series) are much better. IMHO the "background" music and sound effects are often too loud in comparison to the dialogue. At least when watching something on TV, in cinema this is less of a problem. Even with the setting on my TV switched on which is supposed to balance sound I often have to put on my headphones to not have to turn the volume up and down constantly. If subtitles are available I have those switched on as well.

Right now I'm waiting for it to be 8am, when the breakfast buffet opens. After that I'm going to the supermarket and then I'm going to finish my current book and keep my fingers crossed for snow later today.

It's the final night of my vacation. It's been a good and lazy Reading Retreat. I did a lot of reading (4 books, almost 1500 pages), some watercolouring, watching films every night and a little bit of gaming.

I had kinda, maybe planned to do some walking in the vacation park, but I didn't. The first couple of days were drizzly, rainy and/or grey. The last couple of days were sunny but cold.

The weather is also the reason I'm glad I decided to book an apartment next to the facilities instead of a cabin further in the park. It's busier (though it was quiet until Friday afternoon), but I got lucky on the view. And it's easy in the morning to pop over the road to the breakfast buffet and the supermarket.

Right now I'm treating myself to an under-eye mask and I've just lit a fire. In a while I will pick something on Netflix to watch. I'll also do some packing and before I go to bed I'll take a nice long bath.
