    Re: King Rat. I played the Australian, Corporal Townsend, who kills his buddy to steal the diamond ring he wears on a string around his neck. He sells the ring to a guard with the help of King in order to buy medicine to save Jimmy Fox’s character’s leg. The reason most people do not remember a lot about Rat is because of Columbia’s dreadful move to cut the film after Bryan Forbes left LA, going to England to direct the movie “The Wrong Box”. Rat was originally slated to be an epic running about three hours – with intermission (shades of Lawrence of Arabia). People at Columbia decided to scrap that idea, and as Bryan had given the studio rights to final cut, Columbia gave the film to a wonderful editor with orders to cut it to what it is today. Poor Bryan. He got back to LA to find his pride and joy had become only a shade of what it was. Most roles were virtually cut to a few lines. My role ended up so reduced it’s difficult to understand what Townsend has done. (Eventually, in the real plot, I’m viciously beaten to death – great bit of film in which I did my first – and only – stunt – never do THAT again!). I was in touch with Bryan just before his recent death. We’d e mailed each other several times. Though he hadn’t been thrilled about what had happened – he said “But we all had a lot of fun, didn’t we”. We did.

      I am a little overwhelmed in how to respond to your post, I’ve never had the opportunity to communicate with an actual cast member of a film I’ve reviewed.
