I first saw John Saxon in the Six Million Dollar Man. Yeah, the one where he removes his freakin face to reveal he’s a robot.
I was blessed with the knowledge of his semi-rise to fame in the 70s and 80s in crappy movies through my favorite source of abstract moviedom, Mystery Science Theater 3000. Yes, the last episode, with Joel, #512, where Joe Don Baker battled John Saxon in Mitchell.
But here he is in all his early days, looking and acting like a real actor. In fact, there’s more Brando in this character than Brando offered up in On The Waterfront AND Streetcar combined. Love it or hate it, I find it entertaining. Kinda like the G.I. Joe movie.
