Best known for character roles with a decidedly comic intent, the sorely missed James Coco (1930 – 1987) also added some much needed presence to horror films like The Chair and The Stepford Children.
Impressively, he provided his own vocals for the 1972 film version of The Man of La Mancha, as well. His vigor and exquisite comic timing add much to the humor of this take on the show’s well regarded Golden Helmet of Mambrino.
Gone too soon, Coco’s presence here (and elsewhere) proves he definitely will never be forgotten.
Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
