Death on the Nile is one of my favorite whodunnits the scenes between Maggie Smith and Bette Davis alone are worth the price of the dvd. Simon MacCorkindale is well cast and he is good in his part. Happy to see him included in this post. A stunning collection all around. Simon MacCorkindale was absolutely beautiful. Always was.

As a smoldering year-old, he made an eyecatching film debut in 's Reflections in a Golden Eye , riding a horse bareback and barebottomed. His full-frontal love scene in Medium Cool , a political docudrama, earned that film an X rating. I have no idea what happened. There are this many actors and this many parts. You slip into one B-picture and then all you're doing is B-pictures. And then you don't even get those anymore. The next thing you know is you're in a downward slide that continued for 25 years.

And that ease with people, that patience and politeness, that genuine impulse to engage with his fellow actors and humans, were not qualities that were smothered by the smooth, stoic exterior he projected on screen. Robert Forster was an actor who worked consistently, yet perhaps apart from his work with Quentin Tarantino or Haskell Wexler he never got the sort of roles he deserved, and he was one whose appeal endured despite the fact that he was never a box-office draw, the reason a mass audience left their houses and headed to their neighborhood movie theater. You never doubted that when Max Cherry needed to put the pressure on an offender operating outside the limits of his bond, he could and would turn on the physical pressure. He was, after all, well acquainted with the proper use of a stun gun. He delivered strength, compassion and humor in a performance in which he allowed access to depths of vulnerability without ever sacrificing that sense of toughness and resolve that were hallmarks of the performances he gave in less-celebrated projects, ones that were often far less well written and conceived.
