'The man who would be King' is fantastic though.

Alfie number 1 for me, followed by the Italian job, Zulu and get carter, i did enjoy a mullet Christmas carol but probably not his finest moment.

Forgot to add on the other end of the scale Jaws the revenge or whatever it was called has to be one of the worst films ever made.

Remember him smugly saying on Wogan once that to maintain a high standard of living you have to make a crap standard of film. Fine, but the punters are dishing out dosh to see you, kid.

Shame, as he's a good actor when he can be bothered do the tricky stuff like picking a good script, attempting an accent or moving around the set.

Never really got the draw of Zulu, but liked him in Get Carter, Alfie and especially Last Orders which is a cracking little film.

Regarding the smug: He reckons he makes the best roast potatoes in the world. That's fighting talk, that is.

No Jaws 4 either. An outrage.

I'm not sure what has aged worse, Zulu or Get Carter.

People have died for less!

I met him and his wife, Shakira, once. I was working on doing up a bridge in Chelsea and they had the penthouse on the Chelsea Harbour tower next door. They stopped for a chat while I eat my sarnies, asking all about the bridge redevelopment and life in general. Really nice people and a good laugh.

I was reading about a film called Witchfinder General, where Vincent Price wasn't getting on with his director, Michael Reeves (who died soon after at 29).

The marvellous Pulp (1972) only came in at No. 46 so I didn't bother reading the rest.

Also a fantastic Cathedral song. (not sure if Mathhew Hopkins or the film inspired it but it's in the music vid)

What's wrong with Get Carter? It's been a while since I saw it, but as far as I can remember it's a well made, atmospheric movie.

As for Zulu unfortunately due to political correctness going to Africa and shooting the natives has become as unacceptable as shooting wildlife.

I worked in a print/copy shop/office in Chelsea Harbour for a couple of years.

He would come in daily to send faxes and get copies down.

I found him to be a really nice bloke. We were on first name terms don't you know!!!

P.S. I also photo copied Kylie in a bikini (actually her!) but that's another thread completely!

Dont know why we bother. .... but we do!

I might be on thin ice here, but I saw it recently and although it's a well-made film, I found the casual violence against women in it, by the hero as well as the villains, horrific. I wouldn't have noticed a few years ago, I admit.

With Zulu, it's not just the mass slaughter of comical natives, it's that it's so laughably unconvincing, like the way dead Indians in Westerns used to leap off their horses.

What's missed in that film is that the Zulu's are an honourable warrior army.

Whereas the British are more elitist than the Zulu's (they still had an elite too) and for disrespectful. They also try and make injured men do hard labour BEFORE the officers only then forced to do it and get stuck into this at the end.

And shows how ruthless the British army was and cared little for its own soldiers. All they had to do was retreat and let them burn the church and the retake it. The net result would have been lives saved on both sides, as the church got destroyed anyway.

A great expose of imperial arrogance and folly.

In Zulu, he didn't really say “ don't throw those bloody spears at me “ did he ?
