    Needless to say, we had a lot to choose from for our tribute episode to this legendary contributor to cinema history, and indeed we have already covered several films he has scored, such as The Thing, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, and Exorcist 2: The Heretic.

    Looking back at 2020, one of the more prominent film industry figures who passed on was David Prowse.

The champion bodybuilder from Bristol didn't do too much film work outside of that iconic franchise, but thankfully for us he put in a couple turns as Frankenstein's monster for the Hammer House of Horror in the 70's. Enjoy today's homage to the superior of the two roles.
