  1. This posting brings back memories - as a fan of Paul Michael Glaser in Starsky and Hutch back in the 1970s, I also loved this movie and have seen it several times over the years. Although I initially watched it for Glaser, I think Topol is superb in the lead role. Thanks for finding these pictures! Judy

  2. I was going to say something about Glaser but thought it would seem more mature of me if I didn't admit he was part of the attraction of this film :)
    I remember enjoying this as a younger girl and appreciating it more as I was older to learn the historical significance of the Revolution.
