APOLOGY TO JEFFREY HUNTER Fan Clubs , Family, Tribute Website /friends/fans
I was absolutely sickened, shocked and disgusted (see previous posts) that a fellow
forum poster maybe under alcohol/other influences ? had the utterly stupid idea to
write a nonsensical NON REVIEW (CHRISTMAS KID 66), where numerous retarded,
defamatory, spiteful, incorrect, libellous slanders are made against JEFFREY HUNTER.
Xmas spirit or not, poster is falling asleep drunk or not whatever there is no excuse
to write a feeble “review” lacking in all details, failing to discuss the director, the series
of films, the plot writers and choosing instead to make malicious/petty personal slurs.
JEFFREY HUNTER was always an extremely talented actor, who gave 100% on screen
turned up for all days shooting and was heavily praised for numerous classic films.
Jeffrey Hunter died tragically 27-5-1969 after an on set (Viva America) explosion caused
him injuries, a stroke then a fall at home from which he never regained consciouness.
Whatever drinks or depressants or medicines Jeffrey Hunter took during his life that was HIS PRIVATE BUSINESS, it never affected his screen performances and to bring
these matters up and malign him during an idiotic, nonsensical “review” was vile/sad.
When an actor is playing a role from young to teen to adult the producers have a choice
of casting different actors or the same actor with appropriate “age” make up.
We all know this happens and it is generally accepted , but to focus ones "review"
on how young or old an actor looks is worthless, idiotic and shows ill will to the film.
KING OF KINGS 1961 was a epic, faithful recreation of the life and career of Jesus.
IMDB user review says " a glorious experience" and “Jeffrey Hunter is superb”.
The voting for the film is 6.9 out of 10. This is not a “slated” film but a great film.
WITH ALL DUE RESPECT to a GREAT ACTOR RIP : JEFFREY HUNTER 1926-1969
