No he's not dead. And may never be, this is an homage. And not in the Geezer thread because I find the term geezer to be derogatory and offensive. (And the Oxford dictionary agrees.)

This thread is about an 84 year old man. But he wasn't always 84. Pictures from other ages will occur here at a random pace. Stamp is a favored person, as is his clothing.

A good looking guy and not a bad actor, for a Brit (IMHO)? ;)

Stamp was nominated for an Oscar for his first film, a true gem, Billy Budd, in 1962. The film was in B&W, I saw it first run in a Times Sq. grind house (the perv rows way, way behind me). The pic below may have been colorized. He was 24. (The Rowenta was locked in Captain Veer's cabin.)

Some great roles in Far from the Madding Crowd, The Limey, Teorema, The Collector, Wall Street and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Most recently in Last Night in Soho. And of course, Billy Budd, which Peaks mentions. I have always admired his performances, small or large. And he wears his clothes very well.

I suspect it's a publicity still, not a colourised photo. Superb cast overall.

"Geezer" derogatory? Oh hell, my pals and I use it all the time, and we're mostly in our late 70s or early 80s. We consider it a fun, lighthearted term. People have no sense of humor anymore!

Bull sh**.
Please post a pic of you and those pals and I will determine the appropriate name for how you all look and you will not like it but I will use it anyway because when I grow up I wanna be just like you. This thread was created by me and is about Terence Stamp. Pay attention.

Yes, the G word that you mentioned is as derogatory as the N word. So is the L word in the title of that Steven Soderbergh movie from 1999.

How Steven Soderbergh got away with that is beyond me. Anyway, besides being incredibly elegant and incredibly talented, Terence Stamp is also a class act in real life. 👌😀👍

A far cry from the criminals he often plays in movies and on TV. He’s the English Ricardo Montalban.

Nice job doubling down on a completely offensive and inappropriate post. I’m sure you’re proud of yourself. :rolleyes:
Proud, no, truthful, yes. Every senior citizen I know or have known (and I know and have known plenty) would take the same offense to the G word that black people take to the N word. Every English person I have known would also take the same offense to the L word that black people take to the N word.

I’ll admit, I haven’t known a lot of English people in my life. But I’ve known enough of them that I know how they react to English slurs. And it’s not pleasant.

This is an interesting discussion about which word—the N-word, the L-word, or the G-word (not to be confused with the G-spot)—packs the most pejorative punch. For anyone interested in language, the debate could be a lively and fascinating one……

……..in the I-forum.
