John Phillip Law (1937-2008)

John Phillip Law - star of Barbarella (1968), Danger: Diabolik (1968) and The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming! (1966) - passed away this year after battling cancer. Despite appearing in Hollywood films like United Artist's The Russian Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming! and Columbia Picture's The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1974), Law was always primarily a cult actor, with many of his films still not available on video or DVD (for example, it's doubtful anyone has ever seen his role as Stash, the doe-eyed hippie idealist in Otto Preminger's 1968 oddity Skidoo, which is a shame). Fortunately, my fave cinema blog Cinebeats has an excellent tribute to the tall, impossibly good-looking cult icon. That's where I saw this cool video tribute to the man that looks to be a trailer for something called "The Swinging Lust World of John Phillip Law":
