Strapping (6' 4"), blond John Phillip Law is perhaps best recalled for his turn as the blind angel in "Barbarella" (1967) and in the title role of a ruthlessly amoral showbiz executive in "The Love Machine" (1971). The Hollywood native, however, actually began his career as a teenaged extra in such films as "The Magnificent Yankee" and "Annie Get Your Gun" (both 1950). After a stint working on stage with Elia Kazan at the Lincoln Center Repertory Theatre in the early 1960s, he broke into films. Law's first notable American feature was the Cold War comedy "The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming!" (1966). He also earned attention co-starring with Rod Steiger in "The Sergeant" (1968), playing an army recruit who catches the attention of a homosexual officer. After the critical drubbing of "The Love Machine", Law divided his time between Europe and the USA, appearing in over 40 films, including "The Golden Voyage of Sinbad" (1973), "Attack Force Z" (1981) and "Alienator" (1990).
