Favourite Film Faces #2: Tom Hanks in The Ladykillers

So, in the final stretch of my ongoing Coen Brothers viewing, I have now watched 'The Ladykillers' and, without giving my verdict away just yet, I have selected my favourite face. I heard some pretty shifty things about this film - and Tom Hanks being in a Coen's film seemed a little strange.

We are introduced to the sneaky Dr Dorrs character he plays and, I felt, a little unsure how to take the character (a cat in a tree, not really that funny...) until Hanks gives this smile when noting a 'riddle'. Creepy, unique and completely erasing the standard-hanks-persona for an incredible character who holds the film in his hands - alongside Mrs Munson.

  1. Not only a good face, there is a bow tie there too!

  2. Hanks is a very talented actor so no wonder he can do that expression so perfectly.

  3. Got the feeling that Hanks wanted to stretch out with this film and he definitely did.
