ACTING PAGE USING THE TERM VERY LOOSELY INDEED
As with the photography page, having worked with a selection of the finest actors in the trade (and the CV pages reveal just a fraction of the names) it is pushing it a little, or rather a lot actually, to offer an Acting page, but then again, why not? Most of my 'acting' was by default, as a penance for not being able to find someone more acceptable to the director, hence my scene as The Scotsman with Monica Vitti for Mario Monicelli in La Ragazza con la Pistola and my Wicked Squire's servant in Tony Richardson's Joseph Andrews.
the girl with a gun - 1967
A young Sicilian lady is on the trail of a man who has dishonoured her. In Edinburgh she gets a job as a maid and during a party slams the front door on an arriving guest as she has never seen a kilt before . . .
As was the practice with Italian films, it was shot 'wild' using un-blimped (i.e. noisy) cameras, so if you ever see the movie, the Scotsman's voice is dubbed and not mine.
Which was a bit of a shame as I had wandered round in my kilt for two days, waiting for the scene, practising my one scripted line, "Thanks for the welcome."
