"Shirtless Kurt" - Silkwood (1983) - Assorted Moments of Random Cinematic Hotness

This post is part of my ir/regular series, featuring screencaps of "Assorted Random Cinematic Hotness" encountered during my home movie adventures...

Shirtless Kurt
Silkwood (1983)
I have but one or two things to say about Kurt Russell's largely shirtless performance in Silkwood. First, I think it's brilliant and hilarious when an actor, in clear collaboration with the costumer, makes a choice about the character's approach to underpants (ie. he wears none). And, second...
Nice work, Kurt. Thanks.

I love me some Kurt Russell, but the gold standard of casual redneck shirtlessness in film remains Dennis Quaid in The Big Easy. If Ellen Barkin's character had somehow managed to resist his charms, I would have been forced to jump onto the screen and ravage him myself.

Dennis Quaid also does the "underpants free" thing in a few of his performances, most delightfully in The Night The Lights When Out In Georgia.
