Yul Brynner, George Platt Lynes, 1942
Some of you may be too young to know exactly who Yul Brynner was. He was pretty much a movie star in the matinee idol stream - a singer and dramatic actor who starred in such films as The King and I, Anastasia and as Ramses in The Ten Commandments. When I was a kid, he took a turn as a demented robot in a science fiction film called Westworld. He was also a cowboy in TheMagnificent Seven. Jeez, he had nice junk!
