Actor John Philip Law, best known for his starring role in Mario Bava’s ‘Diabolik,’ and Roger Vadim’s ‘Barbarella,’ has died. Law passed away at his home in Los Angeles. He was 70 years old.
Law also appeared in the movies, ‘The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming,’ ‘The Hawaiians,’ and the much discussed, rarely seen Otto Preminger movie, ‘Skidoo.’ One of Law’s final films was Roman Copola’s ‘CQ,’ which I adore for it’s embrace and love of the 1960s era of European movies.
If you haven’t seen any of his movies, I highly recommend his two best known films. He will be missed. -Sam
