I was sorry to hear of the death of fellow tall guy Richard Kiel this morning.
In 2006, we talked about some of his earlier roles, for example on Boris Karloff’s Thriller (see Tulsa billboard for the show and more about Richard Kiel here.)
Just last Sunday, I saw him on MeTV in the very first episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. He was a really nice fellow, despite the apparent mauling I am taking in the photo.
Besides his role as “Jaws” in two Bond films, he was the “Kanamit” in a classic Twilight Zone episode with one of the most chilling denouements of the series.
Rest in peace.
