Hi Sabrejet,

 

I think you may have gotten your wires crossed on your "Der Rote baron" post above. I'm pretty sure you meant to say:

Aleksandr Zbruev as Stalin and Bob Hoskins as Beria in the 1991 movie with Tom Hulce, The Inner Circle or as it is also known, The Projectionist.

This was a good movie, but I believe a toughy in trying to get on DVD or VHS, I remember looking awhile ago and found nothing, that or it was HUGELY expensive, you check again for me :D .

Excellent! I wondered who'd be first to spot my deliberate error!  ;)

When I saw what you posted Sabrejet, I thought how could he get that so wrong? 

 

Normally I don't like to tell people they're wrong about something unless I'm positive I'm right. So I waited, and waited, and waited for someone else to call you out. But it was so wrong, I had to say something. I never thought I'd get punked on the forum ...

Oh dear...I consider myself to be suitably chastened!  :blush: How can I make amends....?!  Well, sticking to the "ancients" theme, here's Donal Logue, as Horik, King of Denmark, from "Vikings".  ( I recently visited the national museum of Denmark in Copenhagen. Some pretty cool Viking artefacts to be seen there!)

Jerzy Skolomowski as King Jan Sobieski III in "Battle for Vienna"

 

I stumbled on this this afternoon. It's a film about the Poles stopping the Ottoman Turks at Vienna in 1683. I was impressed by the trailer. You can see it here:
