Cinematography by Milton Krasner. "Desire" list. Again, in a film with Natalie Wood i choose her partner, the inextricable Steve McQueen, a solid figure of Hollywood masculinity, which owes so much to Mitchum's hieratic somnambulism as to the new version of the straight man that emerged in the '60s, of which Newman was the exponent. A great forgotten filmmaker, a beautiful film, two gorgeous fragile animals.
