Explaining cuts[edit]

The last paragraph originally read as follows:

The "Time Out" film guide suggests that "Lifegaurd" has a homosexual context, apparently based on the notion that Elliott's relations with women prove to be more troubled and fleeting rather than his relations with men, but if there's a homosexual appeal here, it probably lies in Sam Elliott's tanned, hairy chest which is frequently on display throughout the movie. Though the movie was not a commercial hit and though it did not earn Elliott star status, it probably remains his most satisfying work to date as an actor.

I made cuts for the following reasons:

First, this passage seems to cite a source in order to “correct” it: "Time Out says one thing, but I say another." Second, a good-looking man’s naked body speaks at least as much to female heterosexual desire as it does to male homosexual desire. Third, “his most satisfying work as an actor” is clearly a POV statement. ForDorothy 22:16, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Lifeguardfilm.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Lifeguardfilm.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
