Dig a hole: Michael Winner

I read the news today, oh boy. Death Wish(es) director Michael Winner kept his appointment with death.

Michael Winner brought me more entertainment, albeit unintentional, than just about any living director. Death Wish 3 is oxygen to my lungs!

Just yesterday I was encouraging my friends on Facebook to join me in this delightful game and today, he is gone.

After spending half the morning monkeying around at San Simian's Walter Parks Thatcher Library my search yielded the following pages from an as yet unfinished screenplay.

I smell Oscar short film nomination.

"...but I like killin' punks more."

For years I pointed to "The Mechanic" as the one defensible film in Winner's oeuvre. I finally caught up with it again last year. Winner was nothing if not consistent.

Turn down the Jerry Fielding score & ignore the 70's tv movie titles and you have a pretty great silent film for the first 16 minutes.

In his autobiography "Songs My Mother Taught Me", Marlon Brando relates a story concerning Michael Winner and the pronunciation of the word "integral". One pronounced it one way, the other pronounced it the other way.

Winner, sure of himself, soon offered a wager of one hundred pounds. Brando counteroffered that the winner would have to sell French ticklers in Piccadilly Circus for one hour.

The Oxford English Dictionary was checked. Guess who lost the bet?

"Guess who lost the bet?"

Anyone who paid to see "The Nightcomers."
