Roissy in D.C. attempts to ruin the memory of Paul Newman for me by reducing his classic sex appeal to fine-tuned pick-up-artist sensibilities:
notice the change of voice tone. hud lowered the volume and pitch of his voice while he’s distractedly (and seductively) fondling a flower. women are not the only ones who can flirt with the use of props. also: CONTRAST IS KING. playing with a flower is femme, but hud is dripping with so much masculinity that the flower intensifies his allure.
What Roissy really needs to do is tape himself re-enacting this scene to show just how effective this game guide is when employed by a guy who’s not Paul Newman.
