I know your secret, Belasco!!!

I would be remiss if I didn't point out that today is the late Roddy McDowell's birthday.  This wonderful actor played his best role, in my mind, as a cowardly actor/vampire slayer in Fright Night.  Most people will probably remember him, however, for his role as an ape.

Looking over his massive filmography, however, I'm most intrigued that he played Chiun in a failed TV pilot of Remo Williams.  If you know who Chiun is, you'll agree he's perfect for the role.  If you don't, well, I'll come back to that story in another post...
