Val seemed to roll with it all, as did his video camera which captured the young cast behind the scenes back stage. In the scene below, Bacon and Penn, both in their early 20's, moon Val and his video camera.Penn (l) & Bacon (r)
When it comes to putting together a piece for FH, I usually begin by asking a model or photographer to send on any and all images I might be able to choose from for the piece. I love to have as many images as possible to choose from. Some photographers send on 100's of images, other carefully edit just enough for the piece. Bob Burkhardt is one of the photographers who sends on a huge selection of images for me to choose from.
Over the years, I featured images and clips from both the 1997 film, and the Broadway production of The Full Monty. Of course the story fits the site's theme perfectly. A group of mostly average looking, working class men, who decide to take it all off to make some money. Of course once they're all on stage, with the bright lights upon them, there's nothing average about them.Mouhamed Harfouch
Although Harfouch studied civil engineering, he eventually decided to follow his passion for acting. Harfouch was initially shocked when he was approached about the role. Although he'd done many plays on stage, he'd never appeared in a musical, nor ever sung professionally before. Harfouch was known to many for his television roles in telenovelas.Fábio Bianchini
The highlight of the movie, and the musical production, is of course the strip in the shows final number. I was pleasantly surprised to find that someone uploaded it on Youtube.
