Storyline

The late Australian actor Rod Taylor, whose most recent role is in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, was a versatile and popular leading man, equally adept at romantic comedy, adventure and dramatic roles. Taylor's rugged on-screen and off-screen persona created a brand of Australian masculinity now enjoyed by actors such as Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth. During the 1950s through to the 1970s, he featured in many "A list" films: The VIP's, The Birds, The Time Machine, 36 Hours, Sunday in New York, Young Cassidy, The Glass Bottom Boat, Hotel, and Zabriski Point. He was one of the first leading actors to voice a Disney animated character when he portrayed the hero, Pongo, in 101 Dalmatians. He worked with Directors such as the legendary Alfred Hitchcock, George Stevens, Michelangelo Antonioni, John Ford and George Pal.

Taylor made .........
18 August 2018 | by girvsjointSee all my reviews

Not a bad overview of the great Rod Taylor's life and career, with plenty of clips from many of his films, didn't really delve into much of his private life, mainly focusing on his screen roles on the big and small screen, although giving some mention of his first, and best TV series, 'Hong Kong', there was no mention of any of his later series like 'Bearcats' or 'The Oregon Trail'. This was more or less completed just before Rod died in early 2015. No mention was made of his passing at the end. Still, a decent enough tribute to a much under rated star!
