: OK, You Doubting Thomas men, who don't know their thumbs from a hole in...well, never mind. Here's the deal: while I don't NORMALLY stare at THUMBS, per se, I DO have a fascination with men's hands. I find hands to be incredibly sexy, second only to lips and eyes. That's it. Some women go for buns, some hairy chests, but *I*, MMMM, am a Lips, Eyes, and Hands Woman! And in the course of noticing what long, lean, finely sculpted, artistic hands DDL has, I noticed he has the strangest, longest thumbs I've ever seen. Doc's right...they are almost ALIEN looking. Now, I've learned to love those thumbs, along with the rest of his hands, and pretty near everything else on him that I've managed to see in all his films, which is darn near all inclusive. But the thumbs are strange. They reach almost to the first joint of his index finger...that's a long thumb, by any standard!
: It doesn't show enough in the picture in question to draw it to the attention of anyone who hasn't studied the afore-mentioned appendages already, but for those of us who HAVE, it's quite obviously his hands. He has an odd way of holding the wrists, even, that I can recognize. Plus, as I said, I can see the blood blister on his thumb that he got at some point during filming. Don't believe me, just check out the scene in the jail, when he is caressing Cora's head through the bars, and voila...nasty looking, painful boo-boo on his right thumbnail.
: I rest my case!
Thenk yew, thenk yew, MMMM. I knew that as a fellow thumb
con-newseeur you would naturally agree with me. Joe, Joe...
there are none so blind as will not see. It's not only
the thumbs, it's the right wrist. He always has that
little downward arc thang.
The friend of mine who actually managed to get his
sutograph on a street in Ipswich while he was filming
The Crucible was too shy to look at him, so she
concentrated on his hands while he was writing, and
often comments on his "remarkable thumbs." *sigh*
Had Doctor Mary only been there, history as we
know it might have been forever altered.
