Anyone remember this film?

Lex: On those second floor lintels between the lally columns, do you want we should rabbet them or not?

Cary Grant: [blank stare] the second floor lallies?

Lex: Second floor lintels between the lallies.

Cary: [Confused] Oh the lintels between the lallies....

Lex: Yeah, from the blueprints you can't tell. You want they should be rabbeted?

Cary: [More confused] Uh...No, no...I guess not.

Lex: Okay, you're the doctor. Hey fellas! You got any of those rabbeted lintels set, rip em out!

[boards start falling from overhead]

Cary: [shouting over the noise] It sounded less expensive to say no!

According to Lana Turner's daughter Cheryl Crane,

Who had no reason to lie, and whose mother divorced him because of it, this virile specimen is a brutal child rapist. That's no secret so I don't know why this site would continue posting imagines of this monster.

[Cheryl, whose accusations came out in a tell-all memoir published years after Lex Barker died, gained notoriety for stabbing her mother's gangster boyfriend to death with a kitchen knife when she was a teenager. Regarding Lex and Cheryl, it is possible to read about their lives and form an opinion different from yours. In any case, third-party righteous indignation is a powerful and empowering emotion. Let it fill your sails! -Dave]

Aw, Lex wasn't so great --

I could look just like him if I didn't look just like me.


Lex is so hot he would tempt me to switch teams!

Showering in a towel, now everyone will be doing it!

Nom de guerre

Maurice Terrell you say? Seems rather Lieutenant Whitman-esque to me.

Great googly moogly!

This photo beats the one of the guy washing his car. Keep 'em coming!

And an excellent piece of photography and lighting too.
