Yeah, I can sort of see his frustrations at the time and especially being an old school Brit (he was born in 1914). I mean of all his great, great performances, to have OWK be his sort of everlasting legacy. hmm.bmp Was it his acting performance or more the character amplified by the pop culture craze thing that fans admired most? Or do they even know or really care? Just give me your dang autograph, Sir Alec!!! laugh.gif

Alec Guinness was a pompous arrogant egotistical jerk.

How much of a jerk to you have to be to assume that because you think something is rubbish the millions of fans around the world who like it must be wrong AND then you voice that opinion to the fans when they come to get autographs.

I'm sorry but that's a grade 1 a-hole.

Perhaps ... and if you poop your pants once that's all anybody will remember of you .... apparently. biggrin.gif But he was a great actor and wasn't afraid of going well out of his comfort zone in the roles he chose/accepted. smile.gif

You have to remember that when Star Wars was made, NOBODY wanted to do it.

Alec was not as big as he was back in the day and took the role thinking it would be a forgotten little money maker.

Remember, he came from a lavish and respectable background. Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, Great Expectations.

But cinema was changing. The science fiction he came to know was a thing of the past. He did not foresee where film was going which is why he could not take it seriously. Even when filming Star Wars, Lucas stated his frustration in getting the cast to act seriously because they thought it was silly. They ultimately felt it would end up being another 50's sci-fi bomb.

Of course, to his last day, his personal feelings never really changed, I guess. But who do we love? The actor or the character? smile.gif

Now should we get back on topic? biggrin.gif

There does seem to be something "off" about this character, but I can't place my finger on what it is. He seemed to be all over the place. Hardened inner city gang member one minute and staunch eco-warrior the next. That inconsistency was certainly part of the "offness" of the character, but not the only thing.

If themacgyverproject ever interviews Chris Haddock for his blog we might get some answers since he wrote The Challenge.
