If this series has taught me anything, is that a backdrop of smoke is essential to look cool. In my next portrait, I will have somebody smoke a couple of cigarettes on the side. Or a car warming up.

I've always thought one of the coolest characters of late fifties television drama was Perry Mason's crack private investigator Paul Drake as portrayed by William Hopper.

He drove cool wheels, was ALWAYS smoking and, unlike the sexually ambiguous Perry Mason, we could be sure his evenings were spent entertaining a torpedo-brassiered doll at his ultra-cool bachelor pad.
