Movie themes

Looks like the well-to-do cattle rancher Jordan “Bick” Benedict, Jr. played by Rock Hudson in the epic movie GIANT. He went into the restaurant arrogant and full of himself and left beaten after he got his a** kicked by the proprietor. He learned that money, influence, power and hubris don’t make you a winner.

Diner Fight from GIANT (1956)- one of filmdom’s greatest fight scene moments

In real life Rock said, “I can`t play a loser - I don`t look like one.”
Oh, the irony of it as we see Mitt, the loser, pouring his own gas mumbling to himself “I coulda been a contender, I coulda been somebody instead of a bum, which is what I am”…(Brando in On the Waterfront) thinking….if it weren’t for those damned paulbots!
