Rod Taylor: Pulling No Punches

A documentary on the life and times of Rod Taylor, Rod Taylor: Pulling No Punches, debuted on Foxtel last week. Full disclosure: I’m in it, and am credited as “consultant” – probably the only time in my life I’ll ever co-star with Bryan Brown, Jack Thompson, Rod and Tippi Hedren (among others).

There’s some great “talking heads” especially Rod himself, who was interviewed before he died. It features many of the people I was unable to talk with for my book – Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury, Murray Niedorf, Stephan Elliot and Rod himself. Worth checking out – the trailer is here.
