RIP John Phillip Law
John Phillip Law, the tall, steel-eyed star of numerous Italian sci-fi and action films, passed away this week at the age of 70. Law is probably best known for his role as Pygar, the blind angel love interest of Jane Fonda in "Barbarella", but cult film/Beastie Boys/MST3K fans will recognize him as the star of Mario Bava's psychedelic comic book film "Danger: Diabolik". Law also starred opposite Lee Van Cleef in the classic spaghetti western "Death Rides a Horse", a movie Quentin Tarantino liberally sto... er, borrowed from when making "Kill Bill". Check out the video for the opening credits to something called "The Swinging Lust World of John Phillip Law", an appropriately titled bio documentary for a man who was reportedly one of Hef's VIP guests at the Playboy Mansion throughout the 60's and 70's.
