Mr. Kotto stayed a while in Baltimore while filming Homicide: Life on the StreetI'm a big fan of Yaphet Kotto in general.....he could play "menacing" as well as "funny".
The problem I had with the Live and Let Die film was Jane Seymour. If I remember, in the book Solitaire was "mixed-race".....and poor Jane is as white-bread as they come.
Some good ones out there, but I always liked Rosa Klebb. Not so much that she was a great villainess (well, she was, I guess), but because she was also a major figure in 1930s drama. Plus, she’s referenced in “Mack the Knife”.
Here’s one of her performances from way back - it should be somewhat recognizable to many of you.
I kind of got squeamish when Daniel Craig was in that seat-less chair and Le Chiffre was swinging the leather ball.
