Simon Says – Issue 2 – Part 8 of 9

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.

Simon Says – Issue 2 – Part 4 of 9

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:

Review – The Sword and The Sorcerer

By Violet J Nordstrom

Concise.  Precise.  Incisive.

None of the above applies to THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER.  And, unless you keep a score-car, you might lose track of the players.

Xusia is the Sorcerer.  Cromwell is the greedy, tin-plated tyrant who coverts the whole of the civilized world.  Machelli is Cromwell’s chief counselor and insincere ego-booster.  King Richard is the ruler of Ehdan, the original owner of the sword, and Talon is his son.

Screen International – 8th to 15th August 1981

Because he had liked MacCorkindale’s work in “Death on the Nile”, wherein the actor played the killer, Chase had him flown in from England, just for the few days’ shooting.

The day we visited the set, MacCorkindale was manacled, stretched out. The shot was just an insert — a sword cutting him loose, and the camera wouldn’t even see his wrists, but the actor insisted on being locked in his chains — “for realism”, he said. Chase nodded in agreement.
