GRAY, Charles

grayDerided by petifogging walloons the world over for being ‘too nice’ as Blofeld in Diamonds Are Forever, which we just can’t agree with. Iconic Donny Pleasance’s scarred bullethead may be, but the sly avuncularity of his Willard White impersonatin’ mastermind hits just the right spot for that gloriously daffy film. Espionage was his strong suit: The Seven Per-Cent Solution, Masquerade, The Executioner among others saw him daggering cloaks left and right. Oh, and we’ll take his dancing judge in Shock Treatment over his afternoon’s work in Rocky Horror any day.

FINEST HOUR: That sinister avuncularity comes to the fore in The Devil Rides Out, as charming Satanist leader Mocata.
