Oliver Reed and me

My old buddy Rick Stratton took this picture the day he helped me make a life mask of Oliver. It was for a film called “Dr. Heckle and Mr. Hype” I did an involved makeup on him that turned him into Dr. Heckle who was a disfigured monster looking doctor who was a nice guy but when he took his formula he turned in to a handsome and debonair monster.

It was an amazing experience for me. Oliver was a real hoot and we became friends on the production. He took me out to raise trouble in the town every night and gave me one hell of a birthday to remember.

He was a good guy, not the way the media portrayed him. I still miss him and so appreciated the time I spent with him chasing girls, getting drunk and having an all around great time. I was 28 years old.

I’m writing all about this and the wild nights we had in my new book about my life and career. Thanks to Rick Stratton for digging this up!
