Hardcore

No, not the hard-boiled George C Scott vs. porn barons drama. It’s the ’70s tits-‘n’-sitcom-veterans parade, starring dreary ‘cult’ porn star Fiona Richmond, Anthony ‘Artemis ’81’ Steel, Victor ‘Take My Wife’ Spinetti, Graham Stark, a Britannia Hospital double of Malcolm MacDowell and Graham Crowden, Linda ‘Hi De Hi’ Regan, Harry H. ‘would that I could do ‘im in oils’ Corbett and Adam ‘Yes, Robin! The Metro!’ West.

    Remember watching this tacky film during the early days of Channel 5 when they’d show a 70’s soft core sex comedy on Friday nights. Malcolm McDowell is nowhere to be seen in this! Maybe TVC means the character actor Donald Sumpter instead? He’s not exactly a McDowell lookalike, but does at least have longish hair in this before his later bald skeletal look.

    Sumpter is more a Terence Stamp lookeylikey, but while Stamp and MacDowell have merged slowly into one over the years, Sumpter doesn’t look anything like Malc.
    plus Adam West isn’t THAT one.

    @ George White I always thought how interesting Ewan McGregor and Marc Warren both really look like the younger McDowell without looking like each other.
