I was simply going to wish the actor Martin Kove, who everybody my age knows as the evil karate teacher in The Karate Kid, a happy birthday today -- he's either turning 72 or 73 depending on which year is right on IMdb (it shows both!) -- but then I stumbled on...
... this exceedingly gay scene in his Very Very Late 80s Action Flick called Steele Justice, which sees him playing John Steele, an "ex-cop and Vietnam vet who is determined to bring down Kwan, former South Vietnamese general and now rich and powerful drug lord," and I thought...
... that maybe I should take a
little more time, a little more effort...
... because John needs Something To Fight For, of course.
And what better thing to fight for...
... than the man you love???
I've seen enough Steele Justices in my life to know!
Still, having grown up in the 80s I've got a
soft spot the size of Vietnam for these
cluelessly queer macho-macho muscle fests.
Especially ones that know how to wink back.
