Guilty Pleasures Monday – Sam Elliott

Poster courtesy of WIKI and Copyright of Paramount Pictures - Used under the Fair Use Provisions for comment on the actor and movieI guess a weekend “down the shore” as Jersey folk say has me thinking of lifeguards which got me to remembering the movie LIFEGUARD with Sam Elliott, a real hottie in his day.

You can click here for more about Sam Elliott, but you’ll be amazed by how many movies and television shows he’s done. For me, he always had the kind of cowboy/military ruggedly handsome look.

Now, don’t think that LIFEGUARD is a fluff kind of movie. It is surprisingly, a rather complex and intriguiging look at a man who is questioning his life and all that he enjoys because of the pressure of others, including a possible romantic interest in the form of Anne Archer. If you can find this movie on TV or buy the video, it’s worth watching.

I’d put Sam Elliott in the same category as Tom Selleck and Mark Harmon – they’ve all matured perfectly!!

  1. I’ve never seen The Lifguard, but I’ve always Loved Sam Elliot. Even as he ages, he’s sexy with that drawl and such. I remember thinking he was sexy even when Dirty like in movies such as ROADHOUSE and MASK

  2. All I have to do is hear Sam Elliot’s voice and I get weak in the knees. He was excellent in Ghost Rider, too! Sam Elliot.
    Now, there’s a man worth fighting for.

  3. I cried when he got killed in “Road House”. Sam Elliott and Patrick Swayze together. Wow. He has aged so well. I have seen a lot of his movies and T.V. appearances over the years. He does the cowboy roles well but does Drama equally well. I haven’t seen “Life Guard” but will be on the look out for it. I hope your week-end at the shore went well. Have a great day and hugs to all. BTW Sam is still a hottie!!!!!!
