An absolute legend. Just watching Alien for the millionth time the other day. Also great performance in Live and let Die and the Running Man.

Indeed it was. Bond stuck an air pellet of some description down his throat and he inflated like a balloon until he exploded.

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.
Unlike the rest of you squares.

Just Googled him.... As much as I've seen live and let die and the running man a million times and Alien fifty million times It never really clicked that it was the same guy til now.
I believe it was a compressed air pellet.... Surely one of the best bad guy on screen deaths ever.
"he always did have an inflated opinion of himself" 🤣

He was a memorable President Idi Amin in Raid On Entebbe.
