Do you have a favourite who is entirely a cinematic creation?
EDIT: Actually I just realized that doesn't work for mine, either, I always forget that It's a Wonderful Life is an adaptation of The Greatesr Gift...
Mmmh… Ethan hunt from Mission Impossible.
Good question. A cinematic character completely created for the screen and not based on any literature whether it be a comic, novel or play.................................
Lawrence Talbot -The Wolf Man might be up there then.
George Bailey is a great choice. My favorite James Stewart character.
Afterall, I do have replicas of the Jumper, Scarf, Handkerchief and Umbrella.
Edgar from The Aristocats.
Sgt. Steiner (from Cross of Iron)
Baron Frankenstein (the Hammer film series)
If also considering Made-for-TV movies (telefilms):
What do you think of Billion Dollar Brain?
I love it but obviously it's very different from the other two films in the series. More like doing a large scale, higher stakes Bond film as one of the Harry Palmer films. The influence is definitely there. It was actually the first one of the three 1960s Palmer films I saw in the summer of 2002 after I taped it off the TV. I eventually got them all on DVD and wouldn't mind upgrading to Blu-ray as I understand there's a new set out.
I saw Bulloch in full Fett costume outside my local cinema a couple years ago, during a sci-fi festival here.
So cool! And a fun Fett / Bond overlap for sure. I've never met Bulloch sadly, but he seemed like a wonderful, down to earth guy who loved his fans.
I was a member of The Dented Helmet after they had put together that suit for Bulloch, and it was really cool to look back on how they did it and see the videos of them giving it to him.
Yes, it's just like that. I like the story; how this millionaire nutcase is being scammed by one of his employees. But the last part I find a little boring. Too much of Midwinter's army traveling to get to Latvia. It's a stylish film though. Great camera work and striking editing.
Milos Hrma (Václav Neckář) from Closely Watched Trains.
Héléna (Isabelle Adjani) from Subway.
And also, on a very different note, Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers).
As for tv I’d say, Sonny Crockett and Zorro.
I'm going to interject with a warm take and say that A Shot in the Dark is unquestionably the best Panther film. Like it's not even close for me.
Another film I might watch. Adjani was superb in Possession.
If we expanded into TV as asked before, my favorite character would most likely be Columbo.
You know, I don't think anyone could ever come close to unseating Don Draper for me, but in the past couple of months Columbo has REALLY shot up the list for me. He's probably in my top 10 now.
Another left-field choice could be Michael Scott (sorry Gervais fans); he's hilarious to watch and I love Steve Carrell, but also, in his own way, I think he fundamentally puts people above everything else with I admire.
Any reason you like your Characters is perfectly well valid it can be for its complexity or just poor enjoyment of his personality
