Randall Davis Presents: Movies by Marlowe Part 2
Randall Davis conceived Marlowe for discerning men like those of old Hollywood. The floorplans at the luxury condos in downtown Houston are named for the likes of Pacino, Redford, Brando. They would make good company for an incredible night spent going out or staying in. These iconic men also represent life goals. Strike up another movie night with the next installment of featured floor plans: John Wayne, Paul Newman, and Robert Redford. If you need to catch up, check out part one with Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, and Cary Grant for more movie options.
Actor, Driver, & Philanthropist
A noted actor and member of the Sports Car Club of America, Paul Newman is a classic personality of the silver screen. You might know him as Butch from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. You might know him as Cool Hand Luke. He’s also the guy behind that salad dressing company turned charity: Newman’s Own. Whether you opt for one of the aforementioned titles or The Sting, you’ll get a good dose of Newman who just passed away a handful of years ago. Hint: keep reading to see which films he and another person on this list starred in together. The floor plan directly inspired by Newman is for the Marlowe man with interests just as diverse as Paul’s and Randall Davis’. Are you a Newman or do you think you’re more of Wayne?
Channel Your Inner Duke
Some people might know “John Wayne” as a Lady Gaga song or a drink at Starbucks also known as an “Undertow”. True fans know him as “The Duke”. It almost feels unnecessary to list off John Wayne’s greatest hits. He was in countless westerns and even portrayed Davy Crockett. We recommend watching him alongside another Marlowe man (Jimmy Stewart) in How the West Was Won. Another contender is the seminal John Wayne film True Grit. Despite his lexicon of work, John Wayne won his only Academy Award for this film. If you can’t get your hands on the real deal, the remake with Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon in 2010 isn’t a bad substitute. You’re a luxury condo owner – you decide!
Though many would deny it, Robert Redford is turning 80 this year. Your mom might romantically reminisce his role All the President’s Men, but you can actually see Redford in the latest Captain America movie. He plays the main antagonist! We recommend taking in his performances in The Great Gatsby or The Natural. Fun fact: you can catch Redford alongside Newman in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting. You could also opt for choosing one of the films Redford directed like The Legend of Bagger Vance. Much like the Redford floorplan, the man himself is multi-faceted and versatile – just like Marlowe creator Randall Davis.
