Rod Taylor. What a hunk. There, I said it. There
was a period in the '60s when I could sit in front of a teeny tiny black-and-white
TV and watch Sunday in New York
every single time it was on. Jane Fonda said it was the
first time she really enjoyed making a film. Wonder why. There was something
about that Australian accent (he tried to hide it, he really did) and easy
smile that got me and Jane going. I watched it recently and also understood that
I was attracted to the New York it depicted, the snappy theater dialogue, the
goofy hijinks, the preposterous love story. (See The Tender Trap
for another of its type.) Rod Taylor made a lot of
very different films, and I see his last role was as Winston Churchill in Inglourious
Basterds. Yeah, well. Times change. People change. But film is forever.
Thankfully. Rod Taylor was 84.
