Robin Askwith: An Icon of British Cinema, or an Over-Rated Talentless Fuckwit? Discuss.


Darrell maintains that "The Ask" is a legend, a gent, and a scholar. I maintain that he's a misogynistic talent-free zone. Any of you guys have any thoughts? Any of you even heard of him? LOL

Looking forward to climbing tonight :D

I think saying he is an icon seems to suggest that he was almost a national treasure, which i wouldnt say myself. But I wouldnt say completely talentless either - there was a kind of dumb charm there. He was fun, and he did some majorly dodgy films that nevertheless were entertaining in a throwaway sorta way. But we are not talking comedy genius hehe!

Yep, seen him in an orignal Randall and Hopkirk ep, he makes my skin crawl! He did those Confessions Of A... films in the '70s didn't he?..

Don't feel compelled to seek him out on my account, I'm definitely in the "talentless wanker" camp ;)

Talentless fuckwit. But not as talentless a fuckwit as his co-conspiritor in the confessions series, Tony Booth. He really annoys me even though I feel compelled to watch crappy 70's hammer movies whenever they are on. Linda Bellingham's nipple appears in one of his films which I find distressing and I blame him for my distress.

Even thinking about him makes me want to wash. Jagger is horrible too.
