A former painter and illustrator, Paul Jasmin took an unusual route to becoming a photographer. "One day, I just decided it took too much time to paint, and I went and picked up a camera," says Jasmin, whose work has appeared in Interview, vogue, and vanity Fair, as well as in many advertising campaigns.

Perils of Prediction

David Granger
IN APRIL 1971, Esquire boldly predicted—on our cover, no less—that Two-Lane Blacktop would be the “movie of the year.” Inside, we published the entire screenplay, by Rudy Wurlitzer and Will Corry, which told the compelling story of two cars—a 1955 Chevy and a new Pontiac GTO—as they raced each other across the country.

Our Dubious Achievements issue started the new year, appropriately, we thought, though Alan Dershowitz wasn't so pleased to have joined us in kicking it off. And speaking of kicking—in this case, around—some misguided men out there actually like Richard Nixon.

Esquire repeats Newsweek's false story that I told Yale law students that I would have defended Hitler and that “I would win.” That’s not what I said. If your editors had read my letter to Newsweek, I’m sure you would not have repeated the mistake.

CAN AN ACTRESS—a bosomy actress whose photographs grace a disturbing number of teen-fantasyfueled Web sites—become an overnight star after nearly two decades of bubblegum celluloid? Jennifer Connelly, who started at age 11 in Once Upon a Time in America before years of fluff like The Rocketeer and Career Opportunities.

Lambs, lions, whatever—all we know is it's National Peanut Month, and we're thinking we should be at the Wreck; where they serve 'em boiled. And drinking this: the colibrí (3 oz OJ, 1 oz white rum, 1 oz dark, dash bitters, on ice). Tossing this month's birthday party: Rosie and F. W. de Klerk, Reese Witherspoon and George Plimpton, Sarah Jessica Parker and Pat Robertson, Elle Macpherson and Leonard Nimoy and his bud William Shatner, and, finally, skate boy Elvis Stojko—wooo, the folderol! No real holidays this month—at least not the kind that get you off work.

BEN MCLEAN
"BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH," admonishes the soothsayer in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Of course, Caesar didn’t, and he was whacked. Assassinations, both the successful and the botched, are always a good topic of cocktail chat; should it come up, feel free to drop these pearls of knowledge.

Flat can be good, and flat can be bad. Flat tire: bad. Flat line: very bad. Flat beer: pure evil. Flatscreen TV: the most awesome-looking thing ever. Especially this one from Marantz. At 42 inches high and a slender three and a half inches deep, it’s not flat; it’s phlat.

Attention commuters: Tired of wrestling with the unwieldy span of your morning broadsheet? Starting to fear for your life as the feathered edges of the business pages come dangerously close to tickling the neck of the skinhead straphanging to your right? Well, a bearded wise man once said, "You've got to know when to fold 'em." Okay, just bearded.

IT’S NO LESS A RITE of spring than the blooming of tulips and the foolish optimism of Cubs fans. From New York to San Francisco, cars emerge from garages ready to get back in shape for cruising season. If you’re like most, your spring car-care ritual consists of a quick trip to the local brushless and five minutes with the vacuum cleaner.

"I’M MELLLTINNNG. . ." As with the Wicked Witch of the West, that’s what’s happening to the consumer products featured in the Cooper-Hewitt Museum’s first National Design Triennial, which opens this month in New York. In the past, objects were either sharp edged, as if fashioned with a chisel, or sleek and smooth, looking like something just hatched in a wind tunnel.

IT WAS ONCE A DINER'S RITE OF PASSAGE. You sat down at one of those slice-'em-dice-'em Japanese steak houses and out came the steaming box of sake, the Far East equivalent of wine In a box. One sip and the hot liquid burned your taste buds—thankfully, because if you could taste it, you'd spit it out faster than that samurai could sizzle a sirloin.

MIDDLE-AGED AND SAGGING, Scott Fitzgerald once lost it When a fan gushed over This Side of Paradise one time too many: “Mention that book again and I’ll slug you,” he snapped. By now, Francis Ford Coppola may feel the same way about the first two Godfather movies.

I CONFESS I WALKED INTO David Ebershoff’s The Danish Girl with a stack of chips on my shoulder. Based on the real-life story of Einar Wegener, the young Danish painter who became the first transsexual, the novel deals with business I’ve always made a wide loop around.

Seasons change. So should your wardrobe. Granted, unless you're Amish, you probably live and work in climate-controlled environments and, as a result, wear a lot of the same stuff year-round. But with summer coming, you may want to reconsider that heavy gray flannel that was so cozy at Christmastime—bust it out in August and you'll be sweating more than James Brown at the Apollo.

IN THIS MONTH’S ISSUE, you’ll find our spring fashion forecast, and we think you’ll be pleased with the advances in textile technology that have been incorporated into the 2000-model clothes. Dow Corning has fixed that glitch in its solar-powered Corning Wear line and promises that enabling the cooling function on its Summersuit will no longer freeze the wearer solid, as often happened with the 1999’s.

I CAN’T GIVE A MAN A PRESCRIPTION FOR HOW TO LOOK STYLISH. Style is very specific to the person, as opposed to fashion, which is a general thing. If there are twenty billion people in the world, there are twenty billion styles. Can I say any man would look most stylish if he looked like this? The answer has to be no, definitely not—because man A would look best like this, but man B would look really ridiculous, and man C, well, he should just stay naked.

The best advice my dad ever gave me is that acting is believing. Acting is not acting. It isn’t putting on a face and dancing around in a mask. It’s believing that you are that character and playing him as if it were a normal day in the life of that character.

HOW MUCH CAN YOU tell about a director’s potential from his first few films? Could the flair of Alfred Hitchcock be predicted from The Pleasure Garden and The Mountain Eagle, the Anglo-German coproductions that began his career? Could the future of John Ford be seen in his early lumpen westerns with names like The Tornado, The Soul Herder, and Straight Shooting?

It takes a lot of hubris for a twenty-nine-year-old director with three films behind him to presume that either route represents a viable option.

It is with great sadness that I take out full-page ads today in The New York Times, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter. I weep not for myself alone but for the entire film community, for all of show business, and for the billions who depend on it for entertainment free of morality and the pieties of self-appointed spokesmen for God.
