This is probably one of David’s most colourful portrayals. As Pierce Moorehouse Pachett, David played a pornographer who had a knack for turning women into fake bombshells to create “art”. What was excellent in this film is that it captured Los Angeles’ Hollywood hey day at it’s most glamourous. The film also starred Russell Crowe, Kim Basinger, Guy Pierce, and Kevin Spacey. All in all one of David’s best work. Though I think all of his films and television forays are usually exceptional because, well, it’s David Strathairn. Here are the screencaps and a clip with David’s parts from the film. Though not in the film a lot, he still left an indelible imprint. Enjoy.

I fell asleep as I was editing the clip and screencaps for David’s portrayal of District Attorney Joe Lobruto in the Gregory Hoblit directed film FRACTURE, starring Ryan Gosling, Rosamund Pike, and Sir Anthony Hopkins. I love this performance. The line where David says, “Head’s gotta roll,” is so funny. Funny in the way that he really doesn’t mean it because he keeps Gosling’s character of Willy Beachum still on the payroll. The clip is up in the media section and you can click on the images below to go there. The clip can be accessed via the link I’ll provide below.

“Memphis Belle” HD Screencaps

“Memphis Belle” HD Screencaps

In 1990 David was part of an ensemble cast in the historic film MEMPHIS BELLE. David played the part of Col. Craig Harriman, one of the commanders of the various air raids that took place over Germany from the combined British/American airforce. The Memphis Belle of the history books was a Boeing b-17 Flying Fortress that flew 25 combat missions before it was retired to return home to America. David’s character is a fictional rendering of some of the real life men who served. David is the emotional core of this film. With his stoic, no-nonsense manner, David shows his care for the men flying these dangerous missions. An excellent film all around. Click on the images below to get to the album.
