          There's cool and then there's stone faced, two completely different things. I remember Bob Mitchum expressed surprise in an interview when asked about the lasting influence of this iconic noir film, saying "We called 'em 'B' movies."

          I thought Bogey's turns at Spade and Marlowe were cooler than Rick but each to their own.

          Carradine's Bill in the hotly debated Kill Bill is worth a mention in the contemporary stakes. A character doesn't have to appear in a B/W oldie to be cool.

              Steve McQueen in pretty much everything he did.
              Robert Mitchum.
              Bogart, of course.

                Richard Roundtree as Shaft was cooler than cool.

                McQueen in Bullitt was cool.

                James Dean in Rebel without a cause was cool.

                Marlon Brando in The Wild One was cool

                        i can only wish i can be as cool as brad pitt in cool world.

                        satire would be more like "i found out that pen dragon is produced but he drank his way out of the deal', they asked him if he would want monthy payments or one lump sum paid in a thirty pack. he chose the thrity pack.
