  1. I actually live only a few blocks away from where he was raised in Lidcombe and once met his father. But that’s incidental.

    I was always pleased to see a Rod Taylor film. He had such a likable everyday man feel about him. First saw him in the TV series Hong Kong, which was way ahead of its time in dealing with Chinese issues. And of course there were The Birds, Time Machine, 36 Hours, Nobody Runs Forever and Dark of the Sun. Miss you Rod
