Hey everybody! Don't forget Roman Polanski's Macbeth like I almost did.
Very strange Polanski's MacBeth doesn't appear on imdb but I'm sure I have seen it. In fact we were taken to see it at school and it is extremely bloody as I remember. Is that Martin Shaw in that shot? If so he is better known for being in The Professionals which was like a UK version of Starsky and Hutch.
Martin Shaw plays Banquo in Polanski's Macbeth.
Thanks found it now (didn't think I'd drunk that much last night). That really is quite funny given what Shaw is known for in the UK. Don't suppose The Professionals ever made it overseas. It has Gordon Jackson (known for being in the Great Escape) acting all tough as the boss. One of the last of the seventies tough guy shows best represented by The Sweeney.
The Professionals made it here to Australia, I enjoyed watching it at the time, it is on again, but watching it now makes me realise just how fascist it was. Gordon Jackson was also in Whiskey Galore and Rockets Galore 2 very funny Ealing comedies. He was very young. I think many who are older than me may remember him from Upstairs, Downstairs. It is always a pleasure to see him in any role.
The Sweeney was an awesome show, better than The Professionals, I remember watching the first episode in media class at uni. Great stuff.
