    I’m waiting for The System and Paranoic coming out on download from Amazon. I liked him in Burnt Offerings with Bette Davis and Karen Black.

      I think that he would have been a good James Bond.

        I couldn't agree less tbh. A Bond villian perhaps....but 007? No way!

            That’s been said a few times, but he always looked too much like a pub brawler to me. Maybe for a brief moment in the 1960s, but I can’t think he was really a serious contender.

                  What needs explaining?

                  We lost the old forum when they jacked up the cost too much.

                  We we managed to archive some of it on filmdope.com before it went away

                  It’s hardly “hidden”, it’s just at a different address.

                    It was the sixties I was talking about, and I've probably said it myself in a previous thread.

                        Indeed! At the old forum (3rd September 2011):

                        Always thought he'd have made a great James Bond.
                        And again on 17th March 2012:

                        I've said it before on this thread, but I'll say it again* anyway. I think he'd have made a great James Bond.
                        *Cue The Swinging Blue Jeans!

                        You will be pleased to know that Rowdon, lovegod (who I think has returned as earlier poster 'silverstar'), ayreshireman, and the mysterious eddie badger were all in agreement.

                        The members-only thumbnail below is a nice picture of Oliver in a kilt attending the premiere of his film Tomorrow Never Comes (Odeon, Leicester Square, 2nd March 1978). Behind him is (uncredited) wife Kate - with her sister on the right?:
