The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#639]

If I were casting the role of Philip Marlowe today, I'd choose Henry Ian Cusick, especially as the older, edgier Marlowe of  'The Long Goodbye'.  In the only film adaptation of that novel that I know of, Elliot Gould played him.  Humphrey Bogart, who was cast by God Himself, only played Marlowe once, in the original film of 'The Big Sleep.'
