The Films of Roy Scheider
Jsterling03 on 10/31/2008
|Roy Scheider's first screen appearance was a leading role. Unfortunately, it was in the wretched Del Tenney horror film, "The Curse of the Living Corpse" (1964)! Scheider's luck changed in the early seventies with some great supporting performances in several gritty, hard-hitting movies. |
In the middle of the decade, he starred in the film that defined what is known today as the summer blockbuster. His portrayal of "Joe Gideon" in Bob Fosse's pseudo-biographical picture from 1979 earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor the following year.
Scheider was always one of my favorite screen performers, and I was deeply saddened by his death this past February tenth. I dedicate this quiz to his memory.
Join me in paying homage to the late great Roy Scheider by filling in the blanks to complete the titles of these films in which he appeared.
