More Mayhem – Danger on the “JAWS ” Set

It seems that Simon faces mayhem no matter where he goes.  Recently, while filming Jaws-3D in Orlando, FL, he had a slight mishap.  Simon’s character, Philip Fitzroyce, is very much the daredevil photographer.  He seems to thrive on thinking up dangerous ways to get the required shots and camera angles, often using very dangerous and acrobatic methods.  Simon, in character as Philip, had planned an unique way to photograph Shamu the killer whale.  Shamu would be leaping high out of the water, while at the same time allowing his trainer to jump off a platform onto his nose, whale and trainer completing the dive together.  With a rope tied around him for safety, Simon/Philip planned to get the shot by coming up behind the trainer on the platform and then leaning way over the edge, while his partner, Jack, (P.H. Morairty) pulled the rope taut to keep him from falling over.  (The best laid plans of mice and men!)  (more…)

Spotlight on Simon – Part II

LP: DEATH ON THE NILE was your first feature film internationally, and you starred with other big names in the movie business, David Niven, Peter Ustinov, Bette Davis, the list goes on and on.  Do you have any particularity interesting thing about this that you’d like to share with us?

SM: Strictly speaking, I had, in fact appeared in a film called JUGGERNAUT, for United Artists much earlier than that.  I mean, I really only flashed across the screen.  I was cast in a rather nice little role for that, that when they changed directors, quite rightly so, the role got cut down to absolutely nothing.  As it was I very disappointed, because obviously I wanted more lines on the screen.

How long have you been in the U.S.

I have been in the U.S. since February 1981, thought I visited off and on for two years prior to that.  I am glad to be in America and delighted so many Americans seem to like my work.

Riddle – Still a Riddle

RIDDLE OF THE SANDS, a movie Simon filmed a few years ago with Micheal York and Jenny Agutter, was slated for a January ’83 release in the United States.  Due to perplexing delays in editing and other procedures, RIDDLE is still on the shelf, in spite of the fact that there are fans anxiously waiting to see it.  Once these problems are ironed out, Simon will be asked to do some promotional work for the film.  We can only hope, for his sake, that promotions for RIDDLE, MANIMAL and JAWS don’t all hit at the same time. (Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Mo!)

Welcome New Members

*snip*

Also a very special welcome to two new members who are very special people to Simon, Mrs. Jill MacCorkindale and Melody Ann Desjarlaris.  Melody Ann is ten years old as Simon’s sponsored child through Save the Children.  Mrs MacCorkindale is one of Simon’s biggest fans; at least she’s been able to watch Simon’s talent developing for many years – none other than, Simon’s mom!

Semantic Encounter

In our last issue we printed a review on THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER by violet.  In view of some comments to the effect that perhaps Violet didn’t like the movie because she only wrote a straight review from a very objective point of view, I will now print additional comments by Vi.  These we will title:

 

Sword and the Sorcerer – The opinion

Hmm… You’d think, with my penchant for words, and periodic contacts with various types of fans, I’d have known better than write a straight review of THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER for a Fan Club Newsletter, instead of an opinion on what the Honorary brought to his role. (more…)
