Came out with some great perfectly delivered sardonic lines in Moonraker
Mr. Bond, you defy all my attempts to plan an amusing death for you. You're hardly a sportsman.
Look after Mr. Bond. See that some harm comes to him.
Some of many

Also made me cringe when he made finger food in The Passage the year before.

First noticed him in The Day of the Jackal.
Lovely performance
Great actor. Seems to have been around forever.

A great actor, but his finest hour for me will always be as Hugo Drax. A villain I so adored growing up - hence my online moniker.

RIP Mr Lonsdale.

The best Blofeld / Dr. No that never was.

The Day of the Jackal is conspicuously missing off that original post list. Fantastic performance!
