Oliver Reed, Now He Should Have Dipped His Big Toe in Prof. Wrestling
Oliver Reed was a big guy. I think he was big enough to be a professional wrestler. He was also a hell-raiser and one of the greatest drunks of all time. With his lively personality, I think it would have been a wonderful “fit.”
I recently caused controversy here noting how I wasn’t “fit” for something which might pose a difficult challenge. Yes, I’m not “fit” for a bar fight with Oliver Reed (were he still alive and the two of us drinking in the same bar). I’d more likely play the role of David Letterman (make sure you watch for the handshake incident).
But there was one person who could get away with, metaphorically speaking, slapping his face with a white glove. And her name was Shelly Winters (check the third YouTube clip and wait till the end).
