War of the Letters


Dear Mom,
Have just returned from seeing “Golden Child” 
with Eddie Murphy
The villain is Charles Dance. I do believe he is 
the very face of evil. Love.  Joe

Dear Joe,
Don’t be silly!  Just saw “Gosford Park” 
and Charles Dance is the only noble 
character in the lot.  Well, Clive Owen is pretty good, nice on the eyes. Love. Mom

 Dear Mom,
Silly!  No, I mean it! 
Charles Dance is the face of evil.  
He and Terence Stamp. 
I just watched “Haunted Mansion”. 
Stamp is scary, too. Love. Joe
Dear Joe,
What about…can’t think of anyone else.  Love, Mom
p.s. How about Malcolm McDowell?  
His eyes creep me out.

Malcolm McDowell  Dear Mom,
Charles Dance, Mom.  
Love Joe



Dear Joe,
Just saw “Dracula Untold” and I agree.  
Charles Dance is the face of evil.  
Dang.  Love. Mom

p.s.  New question:  What actor could 
be the enigmatic answer to any question?






Dear Mom...
Good question...
"Who changed the
course of American History?  
Andy Williams"
Love. Joe
Dear Joe,
Seriously?  The 
answer: Don Knotts.
Love, Mom........

What random actor do you think could be said to "have the face of evil"?  What random actor could be named as one who changed the course of American History?

These has been an on-going question game between me and my son for years.
 It hasn't gotten
vicious yet.

  1. John Malkovich and Rutger Hauer can make for some scary faces

  3. The face of Evil?

    Any and all of them who are worth their salt as actors. That’s my answer.
    btw: what does evil look like? Outside acting?

    1. Yes, what does evil truly look like? If not restricted to one actor, what does it look like?

  4. I think Jack Nicholson is the creepiest guy ever and I'm hedging a bet it's not just when he's acting. His face gives me the willies.

    Not sure who I'd peg as the actor who changed the course of American history. Who was the first actor in silent films?

    1. I watched Shining once. Nicholson truly scares me.

      The idea about random actors is to pick anyone, anyone at all. For history, ever actor adds his/her own memorable skill that is theirs alone. Don Knotts--say his name and all sorts of movies he did pop up, along with his own distinctive style.

    2. Just looked up the first actors in the first silent films:
      Florence Laurence, 1906, Canadian
      Gilbert M " Broncho Billy Anderson in the "Great Train Robbery" 1903
      This technology certainly changed American/Canadian History.

    3. Florence Laurence? What a name! LOL

  5. I am with Friko here. And suspect that evil has no compassion for anything other than itself. So it comes in every size/age/colour...

  6. I agree, but this was/is a game played between my son and myself. No seriousness involved. Just play.

  7. Thanks for your nice comment about my doll quilts. I know you would LOVE to make some as well. It's a great way to start and finish something quickly--something with lasting value at that, with a chance to try to new blocks ,new skills, new tools, etc on a small project. I have every intention of making another batch in 2015 for Samaritan's Purse. Please make one and show it here! I love seeing quilts made especially by folks I "know" !

  8. The guy in Con Air gets my vote for playing a creepy bad guy to the T. I'm going to go look up his name. Steve Buscemi!

  9. I don't know who changed the course of American history. I suppose there are many. Clark Gable would get a vote, but so could many others. Modern day, I think even Brad Pitt could get a vote (but again here too, so could many others).

    1. Clark Gable, absolutely. Not only was he an excellent actor, he was also a captain in the WW 2 army air corps (I think).
      Brad Pitt is able to give each performance a different personality. He has gone from "Pretty Boy" to where he is now.
      Both have given American History their own legend.

    1. Oh, those steely eyes and superb flatness of evil.

  11. Hmmmm. Well. . . . Face of evil? Mitch McConnell? John Boehner? (Those guys have bit acting parts in Congress.) I don't really know.

    Blessings and Bear hugs, Susan. Best regards to cat.

  13. Anthony Hopkins scared me silly in Silence of the Lambs. I would say that Gene Kelly was an integral force in changing "the course of American History." Rosey mentioned Steve Buscemi as a scary character, and I noticed Don Knotts appeared on your list. I think Steve Buscemi would be a great Barney Fife, if they ever did a remake of The Andy Griffith Show! Sounds like you and your son have lots of fun together!
