Ringo - was he great actor??

Postby EddieV » Tue Oct 25, 2005 11:11 am

Starting in The Beatles films Ringo was the one of the Beatles who had the biggest talent for acting. In the late 60´s and ind the 70´s he did some films.

Was he a good actor??

Well...he'll never be nominated to an Oscar award I think... :lol: :lol:
In HIS style of acting, he ever did ACT NATURALLY :lol: ...Ringo was just...being Ringo himself. "Caveman", his effort as an actor is hilarious, but not a comedy masterpiece of course. His best acting was on "A Hard Day's Night" with a "Chaplinian" acting IMO.

Somebody ought to send him a decent script, I think he could pull off a heavyweight role. He had a few dark post-Beatle struggles that he could draw from in addition to the headier golden Beatle days, definitely a range of experiences.

I dug his Anthology commentary, even though he wasn't necessarily acting, but he sure came across genuinely sincere and honest, he was the real deal.

Yeah, I think Ringo could handle a major motion picture, but it definitely would have to be a comedy. He'd have to have some support from people funnier than he is.

Ditto that. I loved Ringo on the Anthology. My favorite part was when he was talking about the kid in Australia on crutches that tossed them aside as if he was healed, then all of a sudden he fell flat on his face. Ringo was so dry when told that story. I just started laughing hysterically. He has a gift for commentary - no question. I just wanted to hear more and more Ringo stories.
And in the end...

According to Dick Lester in the Special features on A Hard Days Night DVD, George was the natural, but yeah Ringo made a great Caveman!

Whenever I watch him on "Hard Day's Night" saying "If he's your grandfather, who knows" I feel like slapping him :lol: ...Seriouly though, this scene was some lousy piece of acting. His laugher wasn't natural at all.
