The Top 10 Robert Culp Films – Compiled by TheConsummateCulp.com
Overview and ridiculous amount of screencaps for each film. 🙂
National Lampoon’s Movie Madness (1983)
Sky Riders (1976)
Inside Out (1975)
A Name for Evil (1973)
Hickey & Boggs (1972)
Hannie Caulder (1971)
Leave us not forget “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice”! I’ve never seen it, and don’t know if he played Bob or Ted, but it was a big hit comedy film in the late ’60s.
I haven’t forgotten BCTA. 🙂 He plays “Bob” (convienent. LOL) I only just watched it for the first time a few months ago myself and it is very funny and entertaining. I’m looking forward to doing my big capapalooza post for it.
I was surprised by Raquel Welch’s performance in Hannie Calder. She displayed good comedic timing in Richard Lester’s Musketeer movies but I hadn’t ever seen her be remotely convincing in a dramatic role. Was the better performance because she had so many scenes opposite Culp? He impressed me as a :”generous” actor. In film acting jargon that means the person acts even when the camera isn’t aimed at him. Think of the standard camera angle in which the shot focuses on the person talking and to one side of the frame you see the three quarters back profile of the actor being spoken to. Many actors stand around like lumps in such scenes because the camera isn’t on their face. The generous actor stays in character at all times while filming because that helps the actor who is at the center of the shot give a better performance. .
I am about to watch the last episode of GAH (Vanity, says the Preacher) and decided to do a search to see if GAH is still remembered. Glad to see it is. I have always liked Mr. Culp, in everything he was in. His style is honest and entertaining. No one can deliver a line like Robert.
He reminds me a lot of James Stewart. Great dramatic actor and a well measured portion of wit and comedy.
I loved the contrast between Ralph and Bill in GAH.
It’s a riot and much fun to watch.
What about Turk 182 or The Pelican Brief or Timebomb?
Believe it or not, I just watched Turk182 recently. 🙂 It’s on the list for the capapalooza treatment.
The Flood was another great movie. Of course Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice is my favorite.
