He never, in any way, made a pass at me, although he took an enormous interest in me as a person, which I suppose had homosexual overtones to it. But sex was never an issue. And then you realise there are no more phone calls. But I never crossed his number out of my phone book. Borgore ft. Script to Screen — Malcolm McDowell. The A. Malcolm McDowell : Yes. You sort of expect a spiv or a thug. But Northern, the vowel sounds are much softer, and therefore I felt that the fact that he is this menacing character with this softer sound would be more interesting.
MM : I know. Actually, there was a good case in point, because he had cast one of the stuntmen to play the eminent doctor—Sir something something. Stanley Donen was the president of the jury when If…. MM : Stanley took it for what it was, and knew it was an homage to him and to Gene. Of course I meant no disrespect. It was instinctive, because they made such an important and indelible sequence out of that.
I can understand somebody being really pissed, of course I can. Kubrick is known as a control freak, doing hundreds of takes until he got exactly what he wanted, but that song, which you suggested using on the set, ends up playing an important role in the plot, and even plays over the closing credits. AVC : It also seems representative of the kind of energy and even theatricality you brought to your performances at the time. He loved Beethoven. He was obsessed by it. MM : Can you imagine that ever being made today?
The only reason we made it for Warner Brothers was because Clockwork Orange was such a huge hit. I sent them the script, and the director just happened to be in New York, two weeks after the film had opened. But it encompassed everything, and the music. AVC : Just the style of the film is so wild. It opens with a silent-film parody, there are musical numbers—. I play two parts. That was the whole point, though, because people manipulate statistics however they want. When did it leave your control? MM : I did not write the original page treatment to sell the script with me as the writer.
I could care less who did it. I knew it would be a collaboration between David Sherwin, the writer of If…. MM : There was the whole fantastic element of the nuclear meltdown, that I handled myself. Which was great. Which was correct, to do it that way. Of course, the end is the audition for If…. MM : Of course. I remember having the crap beaten out of me. But there was a rather enigmatic sort of look, which was perfect, the look of understanding. It is the Zen moment. It leads back to when I auditioned for If…. That was the Zen moment in my life that moved me from there to there.
I was thinking of actually doing a script, a film, about my relationship with him, and maybe playing him. AVC : You speak of him with great affection and respect, and playful criticism as well. AVC : Never Apologize definitely conveys a sense of how creative relationships work. On O Lucky Man! Good work today, boys. I had it in the back of my mind, maybe, to do it, and to write the script about the whole relationship, and the whole thing of the films and everything, because I thought that people would never see that.
And we could do that reasonably cheaply. MM : Bob Altman was a friend of mine. We were friends for 35 years. I love Bob Altman. I always admired him so much, because I always thought he was a genuine voice. He was a unique person, and anti-establishment; he hated Hollywood and all that. But what fun to have a night with him. They loved to party, those guys. MM : Actually, I did. MM : Oh, I love that part.
I love that film, actually. Well of course, I was in love during the filmmaking—how could you not love the damn film? It was a wonderful time, and also such a beautiful part. Wells was such a fun part. But I actually did do research for that part. Anyway, the vinyl comes, I put it on, and I was so shocked to have this high-pitched, whiny Cockney accent. Of course, H. And actually, when the studio sold the movie originally, they sold it as a Jack the Ripper chase movie, which killed it stone dead.
Mary and I snuck into a screening in Times Square, and the whole black audience were talking back to it. MM : Richard Lester is a wonderful director, a great comedy director, of course. An incre dibly talented man, who just withdrew from the business because there was a tragic accident on one of his sets [ The Return Of The Musketeers ].
Roy Kinnear, who was a friend of mine, was killed on a horse. They gave him the wrong thing, or something. Which is our loss. That was a great treat for me, because I loved Roy. He was such a great actor; he was such a wonderful, roly-poly character, and a wonderful comedian. It was very, very tragic. Royal Flash , it was a lot of fun to do it. Awarded the V. Of course it fell on him, hit him, knocked him out, and he got entwined in it.
The script was a bit overlong, then they introduced the partisans halfway through. Just a bit too much going on, I think. But Oliver Reed was wonderful as Bismarck. MM : Yes, I think so. MM : I like to razz the Trekkies a little bit. But they are very well-meaning, actually. As I like to say, he was playing old men even then. AVC : You told Shatner that half the audience would hate you for killing him and half would love you, by which you meant they were sick of seeing him in that role.
MM : I wish they had done. AVC : The verdict from the fans is that the show Heroes , on which you played Daniel Linderman, went off the rails at some point. MM : I had nothing to do with that. They made some dumb choices, but Tim Kring is a very talented man, and he will come back with a great series, I have no doubt whatsoever.
All right, listen, I got to get off the phone. Are you sure I should do it? It was a culmination, and this incredible character. I was very happy, and it just worked beautifully. Baking pies, it was a great scene. Then it was such a success, that character, even though they killed me off. But it was so successful. He was doing Kings with Ian McShane. McShane is a terrific actor.
I like McShane a lot. I mean, better late than never. This razor-sharp satire eviscerates the British establishment, and Malcolm McDowell relishes his role as the public-school refusenik at war with the society that created him. The disaffected public schoolboy in If … , the innocent chancer in O Lucky Man! Each is a cipher through which the director projects his conflicted vision of the state of the nation. At the time of filming, Robert Shaw was a quite well known star, whereas Malcolm McDowell was still relatively unknown, being that it was made in the period after If….
The film was quite revolutionary with its use of mystery to the audience; the characters, background, and location all go unknown throughout the entire film. The only information on the characters is revealed through dialogue. Whereas the book reveals the characters to be soldiers, this never comes up in the film. Kubrick had seen the actor in his debut film role in If….
McDowell never even had to audition—and if the actor had declined the role, Kubrick allegedly would have dropped the project altogether. In this surreal, picaresque, condition-of-England saga, the Candide-like Mick begins as a bushy-tailed salesman for Imperial Coffee, is corrupted by a series of encounters, and spat out by the system, finally being set upon by a gang of tramps who resent his idealism about humanity. Neither a totally accurate or convincing historical recreation nor a full-fledged overwrought disaster flick, Voyage of the Damned seemed to many reviewers too long at minutes, and yet it was criticized for its superficial treatment of its important story.
Most of them complained that the abundance of big name stars was more a distraction than an enhancement, and generally deemed the movie too confusing and too cluttered. Seen from the perspective of thirty years later, Voyage of the Damned still provides a decent introduction, at least, to a disturbing incident out of history. That to me was an absolutely outrageous betrayal and quite unprecedented.
Frankly, it showed that Bob had no class whatsoever. He just signs the checks! As he struggles to adapt, he must race against time to protect his new, modern love interest Mary Steenburgen from the legendary killer. Includes letters from W. Gillette, Samuel B.

You'll find some poorly written or predictable stories, but for the most part they are fair to good. The Cooper series are better, but there's a few stinkers, too.
They're great for a coffee break or a few minutes to relax. There were an awful lot of murders in this little book! NOTE: This is a two-fer! So when I talk about Sgt. Dan Hollister, Matt or Cooper , I am referring to the characters from the series the Cooper Collection where Matt Cooper is a private investigator who often works with Sgt. Dan Hollister who was his boss when he was a cop. I had not even realized this situation myself until I noticed I read the book under one title, posted the review under the second title, and had the review show up under BOTH titles!
So I wanted YOU to be clear about what you were reading just in case it was not the title you had expected! That was not the case. Instead, the entire book was one short story. Lots of murders, but all one story. As with many of the other Cooper stories, this one opens with Sgt. Dan Hollister asking for Matt's help with one of his cases: he has three corpses in the morgue.
All of them were blind, and all of them have had their "tails cut off with a carving knife". Or so it would appear. Thus the Mother Goose reference. Once Matt is convinced the case is worth his time, he is on the case; and it is time to see how well you remember those Mother Goose rhymes.
