Great actor, who brought class to everything he was in. One of my favourite guilty pleasure movies is the under-rated 'Cast A Deadly Spell' from the early 1990s. A brilliant performance from Fred as the cynical Sam Spade style PI hero of this excellent 'noir' Lovecraftian comedy-horror. Great cast too, including Julianne Moore and that other genre great, David Warner.
There was a time that was our go to movie of choice down at the local video store..
I loved those old Vid stores..
Cruelty shut down bt the likes of Ritz then Blockbuster and the price hike from a dollar/pound or under to $2.50 was criminal....
Oh but you get it for three nights was their reply pft..
At least they got theirs by not investing in Netflix when they had the chance.
Don't get me started on those postal video services..
