Yer fav Oliver Reed film

Unread post by CN211276 »

Thought I would start this thread as today I visited The Pub (thats what it is called) in Valletta where he had his final drink. It is very small and has become something of a shrine, decorated with pictures of him. The Wi-Fi pass word is the name of Bill Sykes dog.
Films I think are good which spring to mind are:
Oliver
Tommy
Women in love
The triple echo
Hannibal Brooks

Shows how much you know.

His best film is clearly Ken Russel's "the devils". That is one INTENSE film and Reed is absolutely ....wot. there is no word.


.......
Just watched "Treasure Island" yesterday. Reed's character accent was very thick but Christopher Lee so changed his voice, I could hardly believe it was him. (He is Blind Pweh, so his eyes were covered over throughout with a rag.)
