Because I Dig the Classics

Just did the Classic Leading Man Test again, but with a twist – Jen gave the answers for me.

And here’s the result:

Your result for The Classic Leading Man Test…

Humphrey Bogart

You scored 38% Tough, 14% Roguish, 52% Friendly, and 0% Charming!

You’re the original man of honor, rough and tough but willing to stick your neck out when you need to, despite what you might say to the contrary. You’re a complex character full of spit and vinegar, but with a soft heart and a tender streak that you try to hide. There’s usually a complicated dame in the picture, someone who sees the real you behind all the tough talk and can dish it out as well as you can. You’re not easy to get next to, but when you find the right partner, you’re caring and loyal to a fault. A big fault. But you take it on the chin and move on, nursing your pain inside and maintaining your armor…until the next dame walks in. Or possibly the same dame, and of all the gin joints in all the world, it had to be yours. Co-stars include Ingrid Bergman and Lauren Bacall, hot chicks with problems.

So, in the interests of fair play, I’ve now answered the Classic Dames Test for Jen.

Your result for The Classic Dames Test…

Katharine Hepburn

You scored 19% grit, 52% wit, 38% flair, and 12% class!

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.

    Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this firewall . . .

    I randomly checked just to see if I could get through and by gum connectivity from work is restored.

    Not sure if it is permanent or not, but for now, of course I did just what they put the thing up to stop . . . I read your blog and took the test.

    Not surprisingly, I scored:

    Jimmy Stewart
    You scored 12% Tough, 5% Roguish, 62% Friendly, and 24% Charming!

    I had a feeling at the beginning of the test.

    Counting down to Baltimore.

    That’s how I turned out, Hepburn and Bogie. Awwww, I feel special now!

  3. superleezard

    I scored John Wayne and Rosalind Russell. I feel awesome.

    Now, based on those results, the question is, have you ever had the urge to go upriver in eastern Africa to avoid Germans?

    Hmm… we did it both ways. When Nunz answered for me I was Katherine Hepburn, but when I answered I was Carole Lombard.

    When I answered for him he was Jimmy Stewart, but when he did it, he was Humphrey Bogart.

    Very interesting…

    Hijacking this thread to say happy anniversary, you! :)

  7. stealthbunny

    Kat Hepburn for me, too.

    Thank you. And thank you, Greg, for the anniversary wishes.

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled blogging.

    I wanted to say thank you, for writing Renee Montoya — I wrote a short essay about her arrival as a Minimate, packaged with Batwoman, here:

    My family all appreciate it. :) Thank you.

    Re: Off topic:

    First off, I have to say thank you for reading the stories. More than anything, that’s the important part. I love the character, and I could happily write Montoya stories until the lights go out, but, honestly, the joy in writing them is largely contingent on them being read.

    I wish I could take some credit for the Minimate package with Kate and Renee, but that was a decision made by DC Licensing, I believe, all on their own. I urge you to print and mail the essay you wrote (which was as reaffirming a piece I’ve read in months, btw) to DC Comics, perhaps care of Paul Levitz. It would mean a lot to the people working there to know your thoughts.

    Thanks for writing, both your post here, and the essay. I ardently hope you and your family will continue to find the stories enjoyable, and, as importantly, inclusive.

    …well, I’ve thought about it….

    Re: Off topic:

    That’s a great idea, mailing it to DC — do you happen to know if this:

    DC Comics, 1700 Broadway, New York, NY 10019-5905

    Is the correct mailing address? They’re a little cagey with it . . .

    Or if there’s a better way to get a letter sent, you can email me at sigridellis [at] gmail [dot] com with the contact information.

    Thanks again!

    That is the correct mailing address, and if you mark it as “attn: Paul Levitz” or “attn: Dan Didio” it should make its way to them in short order.
