Dubov and his nincompoopers
11 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Goodbye Old Paint" guest stars veteran character actor Harold J. Stone as Alexandre Gregor Dubov, whose disdain for critics is only surpassed by his incompetence as an abstract artist. Living alone on the island for a decade to escape the barbs of human society, Dubov wastes no time in insulting the castaways left and right, but once he reveals that he owns a transmitter they invent a scheme to get him to call a boat. When that fails Gilligan poses as a painter to poke at his enormous ego, which also backfires. Stone is an unheralded performer capable of both comedy and drama, and his exaggerated Russian accent expertly avoids cliché even as it lampoons it, much like Vito Scotti's Japanese sailor, and just as funny. Some of his asides are priceless, such as 'nincompoopers' or just 'phooey,' but he never fails to push the buttons of the exasperated castaways.
