Bryan Ferry

  1. Jack Jones, The Comeback, 1977.       For his penultimate movie, UK schlocker Pete Walker aimed higher than School Fot Sex, Cool It Carol!, The Flesh and Blood Show, House of Whipcord, Schizo, etc.   He wanted Basinger or Melanie Griffith as the groupie involved with Roxy Music’s Ferry, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr or Cat Stevens as the crooner involved with his wife’s ghost and her killer. He got Stephenson (who later wed Scots comic Billy Connolly and became a shrink), opposite US singer Jack Jones, ex-lover of Walker’s Die Screaming Marianne star, Susan George.
  2. John Lithgow, Cliffhanger, 1992.         Mr  Roxy Music was listed (briefly) for the villain in Sylvester Stallone’s mountainous thriller. Despite his handsome, Mr Cool image, Ferry only ever made one cinema movie – as Mr Silky String in  Neil Jordan’s Breakfast On Pluto, 2004.  Lithgow went way over the type – and loved every minute of it!
