|A Clockwork Orange|
He was also in NICHOLAS AND ALEXANDRA in 1971, (as was Martin Potter, from Fellini's SATYRICON, reviewed recently), plus in Schell's FIRST LOVE (reviewed below) and among his tv work, a good version of Coward's THE VORTEX in 1969 opposite Margaret Leighton (its included in that Noel Coward boxset). There was also that tv series A FINE ROMANCE in the 80s with Judi Dench. Richard also appeared in Derek Jarman's SEBASTIANE in '76 and THE TEMPEST. Another good BBC play was THE LOST LANGUAGE OF CRANES in 1991 - due for a re-view and a review before too long, a very 'gay interest' title.
He was also Bernardo in Zeffirelli's HAMLET, the Mel Gibson one (which I just recorded from television last night, so that will be re-view soon, when I get around to discussing Hamlets). Zeffirelli's JANE EYRE in 1996 was his last role, as John. We have not seen that.
As I mentioned before, I used to see Richard around town, on his bicycle, and we chatted at a pub we used to go to to in Earls Court in London in those early 80s days. He died aged 52 in 1997, its a shame he, like Ian Charleson (who was playing Hamlet just before he died), did not survive the Aids crisis. He had an extensive theatre career too, at the National in several prestige productions.
