He'll always be 'Sergeant Oddball' to me (Kelly's Heroes) and whenever I start losing the plot I hear him say 'Always with the negative waves ::) ' and it picks me up :D
Others may remember him in his more serious roles


A sad loss indeed and I also always think of him as oddball, he'll continue to make a lot of people smile (have to go and watch Kelly's Heroes again


Yeah, another good one gone. He had a lengthy career, though. I always remember him in the original MASH movie and that one shot in Venice where the little guy in the red mac slashes him in the end.

I think Fellini even cast him as Casanova in a sex romp at one point!
Vision over visibility. Bono, U2.


a real loss, just finished watching a cop show set around the ICC in the Hague with him as one of the leading characters, really enjoyed it.


Donald Sutherland was also in a 1967 episode of The Avengers with Charlotte Rampling and Brian Blessed, along with regulars Diana Rigg and Patrick Macnee.

'Twas "Don't look now" with Julie Christie


Yep, that's the one. Scared the bejeebies out of me  :uneasy:

So versatile.  A serious role in Don't Look Now (loosely based on a Daphne du Maurier story from memory).  And a bordering wartime "comic" in Kelly's Heroes and Dirty Dozen.  His eyes were so expressive - a touch of John Laurie.
