Oh, heck! You're right, he was English. Wait a minute, where's my book?!
Okay, confirmed now (page 10). Blackthorne was the first English pilot to sail through the strait of Magellan.
Not that anybody probably care at this point. I just confused the heck out of myself.
You know, another movie he played in years ago, when he was quite young, was "Julius Caesar" in 1960. I suddenly remembered that. He played young "Augustus Caesar", the future emperor at that time. He wore his hair blond, or wore a wig. Aug. Caesar was Caesar's nephew, and Caesar was said to be blond also. He was one in a group of men, including Mark Antony, who were hunting down Caesar's assasins in parts of the movie.
I do remember that Charleton Heston said something once, that he had worked with, and was friendly with many gifted and talented people who were gay. He played in that movie too. I'm wondering if R.C. was one of those 'gays' he was referring to?
