Robert Shaw, a man for all seasons

Today, August 9th, would have been the birthday anniversary of the greatest actor that cinema ever had, the extraordinary Robert Shaw.

He was the greatest, best actor of the 60s and 70s.

No actor of today can compare to the magnificent Robert Shaw.

His unforgettable performances in such classic films like “007, From Russia with Love”, “A Man for all Seasons (in Which he received his only Oscar nomination for Best actor in a supporting role as King Henry VIII), The Sting, The Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three, The Deep, Black Sunday, Force 10 from Navarone, Battle of the Bulge, The Hireling, Battle of Britain, Robin and Marian, Swashbuckler, Diamonds, Avalanche Express and of course, “Jaws”, were one of a kind.

The 60s and 70s were the greatest decades for cinema because cinema had the extraordinary Robert Shaw.

And cinema will never have an actor like him, never again.
