Ice Castles

On our recent adventure out west, the place we stayed at had a high tech device called a VCR, and included a fine library of VHS movies to watch on it. Sure, we watched Rob Schneider's The Animal, but first we made sure to watch Ice Castles, which was advertised to us as "the blind ice skater movie". Turns out she doesn't go blind until nearly the end of the film, so it was kind of a rip off. But someone looked up the people appearing in the movie and discovered it included teen heartthrob Robby Benson. Aaaaaand no one knew who that was. But i declared that i probably had an ad in a comic featuring a poster of him. And sure enough:

No no.  Not Tattoo.  Stay focused.

Here's Robby:

Why you'd want a poster of his yearbook photo, i'll never know.

But it turns out i can do one better:

Actually this went the other way.  I would have never recognized 'Robby'.  But when i showed the Ice Castles picture to min, she spotted him.
