LEFT: Italian poster for Women in Love, from here.
It took 3 (three!) of you astute commenters to get through to me that is it Kurt, not Ken, Russell in the sports movie Miracle.
Silly me! Hockey wasn't Ken's scene.
For my penance, I will post a few pix of the famous nude wrestling scene between Oliver Reed and Alan Bates in Ken Russell's 1969 adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's Women in Love,
a movie that galvanized me when I was fifteen, but which now I find too, too squirm-making
...all that anguished swanning about in wheat fields...
Still, the boys do look nice in the firelight, don't they?
