At only age 70, too damn young. While not known widely any more, he was in the classic film comedy The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming. He also played an angel in the Jane Fonda movie Barbarella. But the real reason he rates a mention in W O H was his turn as Sinbad in The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad in 1973. He starred with Caroline Munro (hot Hammer Films chick!) & some Ray Harryhausen creatures; among them a cyclops centaur, a griffin, and a 6 armed statue that comes to life! Ah, what a great movie. So now he's gone, but will always live on in my DVD copy of Sinbad - the movie, not the comedian...
