What is it about the general public that believes actors should continue working until they drop? The perceived glamour of a life in Hollywood? Exotic foreign locations? A never ending thirst for adulation, and recognition from their peers? Or perhaps a belief that they can never remotely hope to find another rewarding pursuit to match performing before a camera?

Gene Hackman quietly retired from motion pictures after 40 years of sterling performances, and a brace of Oscars. Since 2004, he has forged a successful alternative career as a novelist, and admits a ‘one off’ return to acting at the age of 85 is unlikely.

Time therefore, to review a wonderful celluloid legacy.
