Co star of DEATH RIDES A HORSE, John Phillip Law died on Tuesday the 13th this week, he was just 70 years old:

He'll also be remembered for roles in other movies such as DANGER:DIABOLIK and THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINDBAD, however he's still possibly best known as Pygar, the blind angel in the far out Fonda flick BARBARELLA. Not much cop in the acting skills department, but he was a good looking fella and as such a notable presence in whatever he was in. I see on the IMDB he was still performing in movies up 'till this year, in a new Western with another "old timer", Ernie Borgnine.

I'm shocked. He was much too young to go (Juan, you forgot to mention his great contribution to Preminger's Skidoo).

I thought he was great in GOLDEN VOYAGE...much better than either Kerwin Matthews or Patrick Wayne in the Sinbad role. Law captured the flavor of the Arabian character in his actions and voice.

Apparently I'm the only one around who saw The Red Baron (here in Italy it was on public tv a month ago).

You mean VON RICHTOFEN & BROWN (1971)? The Roger Corman movie. It was on cable some time ago. Saw a little bit of it.
