Beau geste

beau geste

\boh-ZHEST\ | noun

1 : a graceful or magnanimous gesture
2 : an ingratiating conciliatory gesture

I think this is the first time I’ve taken a wikipedia page as the first site, because it’s not a definition. It’s about the book, Beau Geste. I’ve never read it, never saw the movie, but the summary sounds really not my cup of tea.

The picture is of Ray Milland, Gary Cooper and Robert Preston from the movie.

This is perhaps the most boring day yet.

Au contraire! Any day that includes even the briefest mention of Gary Cooper is far from boring! Ah, Gary Cooper …

Well have to agree to disagree on that. I’ve tried but while he’s a cute enough guy he just doesn’t do much for me. I worry that Orlando could be the Gary Cooper of his generation, nice on the eyes, not a lot of substance. (Now no one throw things at me; Gary Cooper or Orlando fan. I like them both I’m just not blown away. We all know who does blow me away and clearly they’re very different types of people and actors, so no throwing anything.)
