Top Ten 1967

BIL'S BEST ACTOR

It’s hard to find an actor cooler than Paul Newman, and 1967 saw him showing his incredible prowess in at least two excellent films. Newman always had a mischievous look in his eye; even when he was doing the right thing you always suspected that he was doing it for the wrong reasons, but with such good looks who was going to complain? In Cool Hand Luke he brings his sexy aloofness to bear upon the experience of doing hard time, while in Hombre, adapted from the story by Elmore Leonard, he enacts his anti-heroic persona in a western setting, and he is outstanding in both.
