The movie King and Country (1964) was difficult to watch just because it was so brutal in the honesty of the horrors of war like unfairness, rats, mud, dead horses . . .
In the end I did find a familiar nose face to draw in Leo McKern.

From the movie The Woman In Question from 1950. This was a very fun study in the way vanity skews eye-witness accounts concerning the murder of . . . The Woman in Question

Since I've been working on other things I haven't been watching any old movies lately to add to this "Pause the Screen and Sketch" collection, but I have been watching the Ken Burns and Lynn Novick series of documentaries about the Vietnam War. I had no idea just how heartbreaking it was.

One of the veterans from the Northern army commented how he would watch the Americans, how they held each other and carried off their dead and wept.

This drawing I made sometime ago, but it seems appropriate now.

The first time I saw Ernest Thesiger's marvelous nose was in the movie The Man Who Could Work Miracles (1936) but I think he is probably more well known in his role as Dr. Pretorious.

This time drawing from a music video instead of an old movie, it is Dan Sartain singing "Dust" by Roy Rogers.

I've never been a huge fan of Burl Ives, but he's absolutely adorable in this role as a genie in The Brass Bottle (1964)

Hazel was a smuggler?! I'm really enjoying these movies with Shirley Booth before she became the lovable Hazel. This movie was The Smugglers (1968) and Shirley is looking particularly well put-together.
