When one thinks of the pop-art inspired psychedelic films of the 1960s, inevitably John Phillip Law comes to mind for his roles in two of the genre’s best- Barbarella and Danger: Diabolik. Beyond that, Law stood out in such films as The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming, Death Rides A Horse and The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad. He also had the dubious honor of appearing in director Otto Preminger’s two worse films- Hurry Sundown and Skidoo.
Law passed away Tuesday, May 14 at his home in Los Angeles. He was 70.
