Yesterday morning Gerald Peary launched a Facebook quiz about leading men who’ve worn glasses. But with several restrictions. Only in the case of the main lead character, and only in Hollywood-made features released between 1930 and 1980. And it can’t be a biopic like The Benny Goodman Story or The Glenn Miller Story (which should have been called Moonlight Serenade). And the character has to be under 50, so he’s not wearing glasses due to old age. And it can’t be Harold Lloyd, who always wore them. Or Gene Hackman in The Conversation. Despite all this the post has attracted 346 comments.

Here’s my comment, posted early this morning:
