A Trait of Lucas

Post by wildwest » Tue Jun 05, 2018 8:56 pm

OK....this is a hard one. Have you noticed Lucas has a trait of 'swiping his thumb to the corner of his lip' when he is in an agreeable mood?

example in Young Mans Fancy he does it in the beginning after asking Mark why he is in town. Mark replies...."carrying a bag" (for Sally)

Lucas smiles and touches his thumb to his lip. I have seen him do it several times but now I cannot remember the other episodes.

SO ..... have you noticed this and can you tell us what episodes? this is not a trick question....I really can't remember but it is an endearing trait of Lucas

I never noticed that until you mentioned it.

Lucas makes similar gestures like that in a few episodes.
"Vaqueros" and "The Mind Reader"

Lucas didn't do it every few minutes like Doc Adams rubbed/wiped his mouth. :lol:

I'll have to check this out. Not sure if I ever noticed it or not and thought nothing of it.

You are right about Doc Adams. He does this more often then not. I wonder if Milburn Stone did this earlier in his other movies? He didn't have a mustache back when, maybe it's a mustache thingy.

Lucas seems to always look up and down at a person when he's talking to 'em.
I noticed that he does that on "Branded" too. Hmmm?

I did notice in Sheer Terror how he looked Milly up and down when he walked her back to the store after dinner. :sillycowboy:

Milly says "I guess I can't help being a woman" - Lucas looks her up and down.
After that - poor Milly looks like she's waiting for a good night kiss.
Nope - no kiss. :msn-oh: Not even a kiss on the cheek or forehead. Geezzz!
