Rod Taylor - Pulling No Punches



Rod Taylor - Pulling No Punches


Thursday 17 January 8.30pm Channel 039

The late Australian actor Rod Taylor was a versatile and popular leading man, equally adept at romantic comedy, adventure and dramatic roles. Taylor's rugged on-screen and off-screen persona created a brand of Australian masculinity now enjoyed by actors such as Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Chris Hemsworth. During the 1950’s through to the 1970’s, he featured in many ‘A list’ films: The VIP's, The Birds, The Time Machine, 36 Hours, Sunday in New York, Young Cassidy, The Glass Bottom Boat, Hotel and Zabriski Point. He was one of the first leading actors to voice a Disney animated character when he portrayed the hero, Pongo, in 101 Dalmatians and worked with acclaimed directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, George Stevens, John Ford. Featuring Maggie Smith, Baz Luhrmann & Bryan Brown.
