That was a Kickstarter/Unbound project. Neat book!
It doesn’t come across well on a Kindle, as there are loads of scans that, even at full screen, are illegible.
Much better when running the Kindle software on my laptop with more screen to enlarge into.
That must be a general book scanner problem. I’m using Glassboxx and see similar results. I have the print copy, though.
So many amazing films and roles! And Master Ninja II. David McCallum Dead: Star of 'NCIS,' 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Was 90
I’ll think of him most fondly as Steel from Sapphire and Steel, a show which deserves far more recognition than it gets.
Sapphire & Steel was a really strange show. While the pacing can be glacial by modern standards, it was genuinely unsettling and unreal at times.
It’s amazing how creepy they could get with just sound design and a spotlight.
Damn. This one hits hard.
He was such a good actor and so fun to watch.
He was also a huge advocate for the Marine Corps.
He will be missed.
And he was in a forum favorite…
Wait… why was a British actor advocating for the U.S. Marines?
He was involved with Marine Corps charities for years. Was a regular attendee at the annual Marine Corp Ball.
Oh, gosh, I’m so sad.
Goodbye, Illya. Goodbye, Ducky.
Goodbye that drunk terrorist from ‘Master Ninja II’.
(I have the complete DVD set of The Man from UNCLE and I’ll generally watch anything with him in it. (I was the only one in the theater when I went to see The Haunting of Morella))
How odd. I mean there’s no reason why a British guy can’t love the U.S. Marines. It’s just kind of weird.
Wow. Not only did David McCallum put out albums of instrumental music he arranged, he composed this, which I’ve heard sampled about a million times.
A couple of years ago, I was scratching my head about why the young McCallum looked so familiar (and not just because of NCIS). IMDB reminded me that he was the lead in the '70s drama The Invisible Man, which I watched religiously as a young teen. I know that dates me, but…
MST3K connection: The Invisible Man is sorta-kinda a spin-off of Gemini Man, which got turned into Riding With Death.
I thought they were two competing invisible man TV shows?
Indeed, you could have an entire episode in which nothing happens and it would still be compelling.
