Gasp! That picture is so lovely. I'm a huge Red Buttons and Miyoshi Umecki fan.

Lovely Oscar pictures, it all looked more simple back then.

Thank you, Alison. It was more reserved then, although I liked last night's Oscar show. The hosts were a refreshing change. Kirk Douglas was a hoot.

All I can say is thank the gods for Zulu, and Hell Drivers. . or poor old Stan Baker [the original Welsh matinee idol] might have completely missed the recognition he worked so hard for!
And of course, those two Baker films are just the ones to start with . .

I've just see my first Stanley Baker film despite him being a British star. I'd recommend Hell Is A City and I'll try to catch more movies with him in as he was fabulous in this.

I've seen a half of dozen Stanley Baker's film - the one that I like the most was his last starring role as the EVIL COLONEL HURETA in the Italian's film version of ZORRO.

Image

Alain Delon was great as ZORRO, and he can certainty can give Antonio Bandaras the run for his money. I would love to have a copy of this movie - the women in this movie were gorgeous, love the lush settings, and most importantly the evilness of Col. Hureta - played by Baker.

I love foreign films, and I always been a fan of his work. Unfortunately, he died a year later in 1976. He was 48 at the time of his death.

One thing I do know, he was the 1st choice to play James Bond 007 - in 1961 - he turned down Albert B's contract offer to do 3 007 movies starting with Dr. No ... he regretted that ... then, Albert B's went to his 2nd choice ... Sean Connery.

I'll bet he did - especially as Connery had shared the screen (in a very small role) with Baker just four years earlier in Hell Drivers . . which, bizarrely enough, also featured future TV spies Patrick McGoohan & David McCallum, as well as a one-time Captain Nemo (Herbert Lom), and an early Dr. Who (William Hartnell)!
