Charles Laughton is awesome!


Recommended Posts

Big Laughton fan here. He could do it all, Mutiny On The Bounty, Hunchback of Notre Dame (should have gotten the Oscar), Witness To The Prosecution, and so on. I haven't seen It Started With Eve for a long time, with Deanna Durbin and Robert Cummings. Laughton was very funny in that one.

I have two films Paul Gregory made of Laughton's readings during his "Storyteller" tour. He was a great reader as well as a great actor.


While he was good in CAPTAIN KIDD, I thought he had a lot of fun with ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET CAPTAIN KIDD. He loved working on it, learning how to do double takes and such. What a gas.


His most sublime appearance has to be his brief bit in IF I HAD A MILLION. Haven't we all wanted to give our boss the raspberry at one time or another!


And, as I may have mentioned here before, I loved him in THE CANTERVILLE GHOST. And everything else!
